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!!!

How To Make ambrosia pecan pie

  • 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. :)
