I was more than pleased with the results and it was a hit at Thanksgiving. I don't know if I will ever make a regular pecan pie again. Delicious and not terribly sweet as many pecan pies can be. Easy to make, too

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat your oven to 375. Place the pie crust in a 9- inch glass pie plate as directed on the box for one crust filled pie.
  2. In a small bowl, beat all cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 egg with an electric mixer on lowspeed until well blended and smooth. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat 3 eggs with a mixer on medium speed and add remaining ingredients except for pecans. Beat until well blended.
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture on bottom of the crust lined pan. Sprinkle with pecans. Gently pour egg mixture over pecans. Cover the edges of the crust with 2 to 3 inche wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
