Splendid Southern Splenda Pecan Pie

Heather McDaniel-Adair


I never tell people this pie is made with Splenda, since most shy away from anything w/ low cal or no cal ingredients, thinking you jeopardize the flavor. Well, trust me, you'll never notice and your friends/family will never guess this isn't made w/ real sugar. And because this recipe uses Splenda, instead of traditional sugar, it's super quick to make, since you're not having to temper eggs. You won't be risking a sugar burn either!

10 Min


55 Min


1 stick
1 c
1 c
light corn syrup
3 large
eggs (beaten)
1 c
pecans, in pieces
1/2 pkg
refrigerated pie crust (9in shell)

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat pie crust lightly in flour, press and crimp into 9in pie pan, removing any extra dough. Set aside.
In small saucepan, melt butter. Do not let it brown. Whisk in light corn syrup and Splenda. Spray measuring cup w/ PAM to reduce stickiness. Mixture will be a little clumpy, even after whisking. That's normal, and won't effect the end product. Let cool slightly, then stir in eggs. Mix well. Stir in pecans.
Pour pecan mixture into pie shell. Poke around @ pecans til they are dispersed evenly. Bake 50-55 minutes. Start keeping an eye on the crust around 45 minutes. If it starts to get too dark, cover w/ aluminum foil. Let cool and serve.
