    PCrocker's Note:

    The secret to this rich pie is cooking the sugar and corn syrup first. It is definitely not diet food! I bake this pie for 45 minutes according to my oven but you may need to bake longer.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In saucepan boil sugar and corn syrup together for 2 to 3 minutes; set aside to cool slightly.
    2. 2
      In large bowl beat eggs lightly and very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the eggs, stirring constantly.
    3. 3
      At this point I like to strain the mixture to make sure it's smooth and lump free.
    4. 4
      Stir in butter, vanilla, and pecans and pour into crust.
    5. 5
      Bake in a 350°F oven for about 45 to 60 minutes or until set.

      Absolutely amazing! Made this for my husband and father-in-law because it is their favorite and it turned out to be my favorite! I signed up specifically to review this recipe. It's a keeper and will be my only pecan pie recipe. I made a Gluten Free Dairy Free crust and it was the crowning glory of our Thanksgiving dinner!

      I tweaked the recipe a bit. As the sugar/corn syrup cooled, I melted the butter in it to absorb some of the warmth before I whisked it slowly into the eggs. Worked like a charm!!

      I've been making pecan pie for the holidays for about 35 years. I decided to give this one a try prior to the holidays (would hate to disappoint at Thanksgiving or Christmas). This has become my new pecan pie recipe! I love the gooey-ness of the filling. The smaller the pie plate, the thicker the filling (obviously) which makes it richer!! Amazing what a difference dissolving the sugar makes. Try it, you'll love it...
