WOW! Not a traditional pecan pie, but dare I say better! (1) I boiled the sugar and corn syrup to combine, let it cool slightly; (2) beat the eggs, then added that into the sugar mixture; (3) mixed the rest of the ingredients together; (4) poured it all into a puff pastry crust. Next time I would add some extra pecans to the mix, but it definitely came out great! Perfect consistency and super tasty!
This makes a BEAUTIFUL pie! I made a few alterations, including using twice the nuts and some chocolate chips, maple syrup, and crumb topping, but it would have been delicious as-is. The oatmeal cuts the sweetness just enough, and makes a more hearty pie. Loved it!
This was so easy to make and was a huge hit for the Holidays! I do not cook much, but this I enjoyed doing.
This is soooo good. You will not miss the full fat version. The oatmeal gives the filling a nutty, hearty taste. I found it easy to make. I topped it off with a little light vanilla ice cream.
