Ingredients

nonstick cooking spray
1/2 c
unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 c
oat flour
1/8 tsp
salt
1/4 c
(1/2 stick) butter
1/4 c
cold water
3
eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 c
sugar
1 1/2 c
light-color corn syrup
3 Tbsp
butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
pecans, coarsely chopped
vanilla ice cream

Directions Step-By-Step

1
For pastry, in a medium bowl stir together both flours and salt. Using pastry blender cut in the 1/4 cup butter until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of the cold water over part of the flour mixture; gently toss with a fork to mix. Push moistened pastry to side of bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 Tbsp. of water at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Form dough into a ball.
2
On a lightly floured surface use your hands to slightly flatten pastry into a square. Roll pastry from center to edges into a 9x9-inch square, lightly dusting with flour as needed. Set aside.
3
For filling, in a large bowl combine eggs, sugar, corn syrup, the 3 Tbsp. melted butter, and vanilla. Pour one-third of egg mixture into a sprayed 9x9-inch baking pan. Stir pecans into remaining egg mixture.
4
Wrap pastry around the rolling pin. Unroll on top of egg mixture in baking dish. Slowly pour nut mixture over pastry.
5
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool 45 minutes before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
