The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: Secret Recipe Revealed - Pecan Pie

Secret Recipe Revealed - Pecan Pie

Secret Recipe Revealed - Pecan Pie

My brother absolutely loves Pecan Pie.  As my wife and both children are allergic to pecans (and other tree nuts), we don't have this in the house unless my brother is visiting.  It is a very tThose Nuts Taste Greatasty moist version of a pie that can be done very wrong.

Mom's Pecan Pie

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

2 Tbsp. flour

1-1/4  cup light corn syrup

3 Tbsp. butter

1/4 tsp. salt

3 eggs

1-1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell

1 cup large pieces of pecans

Mix brown sugar and flour in saucepan.  Add corn syrup, butter, and salt; warm over low heat just until butter is melted.  Remove from heat.  Beat eggs with vanilla.  Stir into sugar mixture.  Turn into pie shell; sprinkle with pecans.  Bake on lower rack of oven at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes untill filling is set in center.  Don't overcook.  Cool before cutting.

It sounds delicious, Chris! Your brother is lucky that your wife and kids can tolerate having the pie in the house when he visits! :) One questions, you said this is a version of a pie that can be done very wrong. What did you mean?

Hi Nina - Something about pecan pie--some versions are dry and some are moist.  My preference is moist.  I have also been served hard pecan pie.  To me, that is "done very wrong."  : )

Chris, you are BAD, I had a piece at Thanksgiving, and found out it has almost 900 calories, and realized, the better it tastes, the worse it is for us, BUT SO GOOD.

Definitely sounds like a wonderful recipe.  One of my favorite things about the holidays is all of the wonderful food that you get to share with your loved ones.

I've only had Pecan Pie once and it was so sweet I couldn't finish it.  But, since my husband is a huge fan of Pecan Pie, I'll keep this recipe in mind.

Thanks for all the great comments--haven't been able to access too well for a few days.  January is for counting calories, not Decemter!  : )

My ex wife's favorite. Way too sweet for me. I'm a cheesecake guy from the word go.
