This is an ok recipe for pecan pie. It is one of the better ones actually, but the very best pecan pie is the one my mother has made for years. I am going to submitt the recipe today. It is for those of you that like a LESS SWEET version. This version is REALLY SIMPLE, and every time I make it, everyone says it is the very best that they have ever eaten. Pecan Pies today seem to be all corn surypy, so all you can taste is sweet. My recipe is sweet, but buttery, almost caremelly. Here's the basic ingredients list. 1 stick melted butter 1 c. sugar 1 c. butter flavored pancake syrup 1/4 tsp of salt 1 tsp vanilla extract 3 eggs 1 prepared pie crust(deep dish style crust or you might have a little too much filling.) 1 c. Pecans or Enough Pecans to cover the bottom of your pie shell. You beat the 3 eggs well in a medium/large bowl, mix in the salt, sugar, and pancake syrup. Mix well, then slowly add the melted butter a little at a time to the egg mixture. Finally add the vanilla. Arrange the pecans in the bottom of your pie shell and then pour the syrup misture over the top of it. Put it into the preheated oven and bake like other recipes say. I promise this is the best pecan pie you'll ever eat!!

Pecan Pie is always a favorite with my family and this one is dynamite! One thing that should be in the instructions is that the water and corn starch are mixed together before adding to the sugar mixture. I sometimes forget and add the water before I remember to mix it with the starch. The result is either a watery base and end up cooking the sugar mixture longer.

I made this recipe as directed and it didn't turnout as well as I had hoped. I didn't want to give up on this recipe, so I made it again and tweaked the recipe using brown sugar and light corn syrup. This made a big difference and is the pecan pie I was looking for. I won't go back to my old recipe again.
