This great recipe was my mom's "special" pecan pie for special occasions. I'm not sure where it came from, but since we had our own pecan tree, Mom tried every pecan pie recipe around, and this one stood the test of time.

For some reason the helpful formatting doesn't show up on my tablet so I'm posting this for anyone else who might have a similar issue... Bottom layer: cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 egg. Top layer: pecan pieces, 3 eggs, corn syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup sugar.
