This is a recipe I adapted from several recipes. We love pecan pie but my husband complained that in most of the recipes I tried there was too much "goo" and not enough pecans. So, I adapted this from other recipes I had tried.

If you like your pecan pie heavy on the pecans and light on the "goo," then this pecan pie recipe is for you! Full of crunchy pecans, with just enough filling to hold it together, this recipe has all the wonderful flavors you'd expect from a pecan pie. Plus, it's really easy to make. A great pie for beginners to make for the holidays. The Test Kitchen

  3. Pour into prepared pie shell.
  4. Bake 10 minutes.
