ISO Not so Sweet, no Corn Syrup Pecan Pie

thursday | Nov 21, 200907:11 PM

I did a search and a thread came up about this, but the link was broken, so I'm perfectly happy to read that thread if someone can send me over there...but in the meantime -

I used to adore pecan pie, but ever since we started eating more healthily a few years ago, my tried and true Karo recipe just tastes too sweet and cloying. I'm finally biting the bullet and changing to a new recipe for the first time in, oh, fifty years, since Mom only used the Karo recipe too.

Here's what I'd like: a traditional pecan pie that's heavy on the pecans, both in flavor in number - I'd like it to taste more like sweetened pecans than nut-flavored syrup. No chocolate or cranberries or caramel or other acoutrements, though I do like it with bourbon, and I don't have the counter space to make a pie crust, so I have to use pre-bought. Also, I won't be able to do a dry run before Turkey Day, so I'd appreciate only recipes that have actually been tried and tasted, rather than ideas, etc.

Thanks so much, chowhounders!
