The filling is not sickening sweet because there is no corn syrup. This recipe is requested by my family every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I was amazed at how nice this pie is. I used 1 full cup of pecans and that was my only change. The filling was not super sweet but still wonderful. This pie was all about the pecans and not the syrupy custard that most pecan pies have. I will definitely make this again! Read More

OK...beware!!! You HAVE to use WHITE VINEGAR in this recipe. I only had Apple Cider Vinegar on hand & ewww yuck what a mess! The mixture curdled while mixing it up. Then after baking an hour it still reeked of vinegar smell. Then a test taste made me throw it away:( I will try this one again with white vinegar as a friend told me that the apple cider variety IS the reason mine curdled. Read More

corn syrup is so sweet and i don't happen to keep it in my pantry because i never use it. so in finding this recipe i had to try it. WOW!! this is such an easy and quick recipe and sooo good. the "pie" came out custard-y just the right sweetness and light. not at all the heavy greasy gut bomb pecan pies can sometimes be. well worth trying even if you wrinkle your nose at the vinegar. my tweaks to the recipe: used light brown sugar instead of the white sugar upped the vanilla a half a teaspoon added a couple dashes of cinnamon and melted the butter before mixing with the sugar.

This is really good because it isn't so sweet. The only thing I would do is chop the pecans a little. We loved it. Read More

My modifications:..... 1. Added 1/4 cup dark brown sugar 2. Added another tsp. of vanilla 3. Doubled pecans. Toasted lightly......... What I'd do next time:..... Keep mods 1 & 2. Add only 1/4 cup extra pecans and would chop them real fine. There's not enough filling and what filling there is is just too light and fluffy to handle many more pecans imho...... Even if you don't add more pecans chop those puppys fine.:o) I didn't and cutting slices was impossible. A wreck. I had to spoon it........ Nice flavor with mods 1 & 2. Very simple and fast recipe too. Read More

Thank goodness that I found this recipe again!!! I used this recipe for Thanksgiving last year and forgot to save it to my recipe box. I had to search for it using the vinegar as an ingredient I wanted and corn syrup as one I didn't. This was one of the two very first pies I've ever made and it got rave reviews. I followed the recipe to a tee with no alterations. It's sweet but not an overkill on the sweet-tooth like most pecan pies. Read More

I've made this pie every Thanksgiving for the last 3 years. My family asks for it each year. It isn't too sweet like a lot of other pecan pie recipes. Read More
