Pecan pie is always good in my book, but add chocolate pudding and homemade whipped cream and I'm in heaven!

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350°F.
2
Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon. Stir in pecans. Pour filling into pie crust.
3
Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes (see tips for doneness, below). Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.
**To use prepared frozen pie crust: Place cookie sheet in oven and preheat oven as directed. Pour filling into frozen crust and bake on preheated cookie sheet.
4
While the pie is bake, prepare Jello pudding according to package directions. Put in the refrigerator to cool.
5
When pudding and pie are chilled, spread pudding over the pie. In a mixing bowl whip heavy cream till almost stiff. Add sugar and vanilla and whip until cream holds peaks. Top pie with whip cream.
6
If you would like to garnish pie, Melt a 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips in a double boiler, whisk in about 2-3 tablespoons of milk, whisk until smooth, put in a squeeze bottle, or do like I do, put it in a zipper bag and cut the very tip out of a corner and drizzle over the pie. Enjoy!

RECIPE TIPS: Pie is done when center reaches 200°F. Tap center surface of pie lightly - it should spring back when done. For easy clean up, spray pie pan with cooking spray before placing pie crust in pan. If pie crust is overbrowning, cover edges with foil.

NUTRITION TIP: To reduce calories, substitute new Karo® Lite Syrup for the Karo® Light or Dark Corn Syrup.
High Altitude Adjustments: Reduce sugar to 1/4 cup and increase butter to 2 tablespoons. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
VARIATION: coarsely chopped walnuts may be substituted for pecans to make a walnut pie.
