JANE's Story

I have no idea where I got this recipe so I guess it's a mystery for real. But, I think it's called mystery because of the way it all conjells together when baking. It's delicious and RICH. A little piece goes a long way.


1 c
light corn syrup
1 tsp
vanilla extract
8 oz
cream cheese room temp
1/3 c
1/4 tsp
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
chopped pecans
9 in. unbaked pie shell

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine all topping ingredients and mix with handmixer to blend.
In bowl, mix all pie ingredients except nuts. Beat until blended.
In Pie shell: Pour pie ingredients in pie shell. Then set the pecans on that layer. Cover nuts with topping mixture. Bake in pre-heated 350 oven for 45 minutes. Check doneness before removing from oven as each oven is different. Serve warm or room temp.

    My mom won a blue ribbon for this pie in a baking contest in Wichita Falls, TX many years ago. My mother was the ultimate baker and everything she put her hands on came out delicious! She passed away from Ovarian cancer almost 4 yrs ago and her obituary opened up with "heaven gained a new cook today!" :-) I always thought the "mystery" was the cream cheese in the pie. Have a blessed day, Love your recipes!

    OMG! I LOVE this story and will now always remember it when making this pie...which is now, during the holidays. It's too rich and bad for me during the normal year. But it's a perfect pie for the holidays. I lost my mom, too about 6 years ago. I know she celebrates Christmas with God now. She wasn't a good cook, however, so while you're mom's in the kitchen my mom will be setting the table...she was a great decorator! Merry Christmas!
