A family favorite that puts a new twist on the traditional Pecan Pie. It has great taste and flavor and the hardest part about this pie is remembering that it is in the oven. LOL!!!

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

3
eggs
3/4 c
light corn syrup
1/2 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
brown sugar
3 Tbsp
orange juice
2 Tbsp
butter, melted
1 tsp
grated orange peel
1/8 tsp
salt
1 1/2 c
chopped pecans
2/3 c
flaked coconut
1
unbaked pastry shell

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, beat eggs, corn syrup, sugars, orange juice, butter, orange peel and salt until well blended.
2
Stir in pecans and coconut.
3
Pour into pastry shell. Bake at 350 degree for 50-60 minutes or until a knife test thru the center of the pie comes out clean.
You should also use a pie cover and if you don't have one, I have always used foil around the outside of the pie so the edges do not burn. :)
