This is a simple, yet delicious recipe to make without the syrup that most pecan pie recipes call for. It's more like a custard pie with pecans.

Gave this a try for a change of pace and was pleasantly surprised. I used Splenda and 1 1/2 Tablespoons Molasses to cut back on sugar and it was a nice treat. Sometimes those syrupy pecan pies are just too much and I'm glad to have an alternative. Read More

There is no karo syrup where I live. I'm from Texas but have lived in Scotland for 10 years. There is no Thanksgiving here either but there IS in my house. I love pecan pie but never have it anymore. This year I just wanted to be traditional so I searched until I found this recipe. It's fantastic. You've just gotta try it. I never knew you could make a pecan pie without corn syrup. But YOU CAN and it's better than I ever imagined. The only thing I did different is I accidentally bought dark brown sugar so I just used 3/4 dark and 1/4 white to tone it down a bit. Worked a treat.

I loved this. It's so good--kind of butterscotchy I think. Quick easy tasty. I wouldn't skip the chopped pecans--love the crunch. The pecans on the top become nice and toasty with great flavor. Read More

Quick easy and delicious. Not as sweet and syrupy as regular pecan pie but still has great flavor. Would use less butter maybe 2-3 tablespoons. Make sure you use deep dish as recipe states. This is a pleasant change and definite "make again". Read More

Very nice recipe I like the custard texture better than the syrupie one I usually get with pecan pies. I dont agree with another reviewer about too many pecans but I love pecans. My bottom crust did not cook and it took about 1 1/2 hours to set but I think a glass pie plate would resolve that I used a foil one. Great pie. Read More

I will forever use this pecan pie recipe. I ended up making 2 regular pies with the filling instead of one deep dish and they turned out beautifully. My father-in-law ate a whole pie by himself and has requested another one for Christmas. I love this pecan pie! Read More

Absolutely great! just like the ones my great aunt used to bake. I always roast the pecans first to give an even more "old fashion" taste. Read More

This pie was absolutely wonderful!!! I always worry about making pecan pie for Thanksgiving because sometimes they turn out and sometimes you get a mess. I would give this pie 5 stars for the flavor and ease however I can only give it 4 stars because the baking time like other viewers said was way off!! There was no way this pie was going to be done in 40 min! I believe mine baked for 1 1/2 hours. I kept checking it after an hour and it wasn't set yet. When it was all the way done however it was perfect!!! Make sure to put aluminum foil around the edges for this pie because of the length of time it needs to bake! This will be my pecan pie recipe every Thanksgiving from here on out...Thank you so much!! Read More
