Have long looked for a pecan pie recipe that doesn't contain corn syrup. Have tried several, and this rises to the top. It was submitted to AllRecipes by Elaine Helms. Not as cloyingly sweet as most pecan pies, and readily adaptable for personal preferences and modifications. I have listed her ingredients, then my substitutions for a lighter (lol) version that doesn't seem to sacrifice anything! Hope that you enjoy. If you start at the top of the ingredients (after crust) then you can blend them all in one bowl. I use a whisk, but you can use mixer just as well. With modifications this recipe will work well for a variety of specialty diets- diabetic, low carb, gluten free (use rice flour), omit crust altogether, vegetarian. Change flavors, nuts, add chocolate, coconut. Simply have fun!
