No Syrup Pecan Pie

Cathy Nunn


I got this recipe from a friend of mine in NYC! (Thanks Ron!!) As the name suggests, this pie is made without the usual corn syrup most all Pecan Pies call for. I have made this pie, in fact,I doubled the recipe and made two of them and are they GOOD!!! The photo to the left shows my pies straight from the oven! They smell heavenly! I tasted the filling and it is perfect. These are cool by now and have set they way they are supposed to. Now all I need to make is the whipped cream!
