Heather's Story

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!

Ingredients

1 stick
butter
1 c
splenda
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

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat pie crust lightly in flour, press and crimp into 9in pie pan, removing any extra dough. Set aside.
2
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.
3
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.

You can make your own Brown Sugar / Splenda blend. 1st, make your own brown sugar by mixing 1 tablespoon* molasses into 1 cup granulated sugar. Initially it will seem like it is not going to work, but keep mixing....it will eventually look just like the brown sugar you buy. I prefer mixing this with a fork, but you can use a mixer as well. Best of all: you can make just what you need and not waste any by having it turn into a brick in your pantry. Mix Splenda and your brown sugar at a ration of 1:1. Note: If you are using a regular recipe (not meant for sugar free), only use half the blend for the sugar. In other words if it calls for 1 cup of brown sugar, use 1/2 of your blend because your (and Splenda's) blend is twice as sweet as regular brown sugar and therefore only half the amount is needed.

* For dark brown sugar, add another tablespoon of molasses to your sugar. You can make this lite or very, very dark. It's your preference.
