Wow! This is really good. My family's recipe uses dark Karo (yuk) and only three eggs. Like another reviewer, I think using four eggs makes a big difference in the texture. Thanks so much for posting. This is a keeper! :)

This recipe makes an excellent pecan pie!! I have used the Karo Syrup pecan pie recipe forever and I just wanted to try something a little different. I still used Karo light corn syrup but followed your recipe. I cut the sugar back to 2/3 cup and could not tell any difference in the texture. In fact, I like the texture of this pie, with 4 eggs, better than the old one I used which called for 3 eggs. This is definitely a delicious pie! Thanks for sharing! :-)

Very easy, very yummy pie. I used a 3/4 cup of sugar and didn't miss the difference a bit.
