Pecan Pie (No Corn Syrup)

This pecan pie is rich, it sets up beautifully. The Lyle's syrup gives it a deep caramel flavor. This pie is perfect for anyone that can't have corn syrup, or wants to avoid it. I prefer the flavor to a traditional pie with corn syrup. I use five eggs, you can get away with 4 eggs but I use five to ensure it sets beautifully. A little less sugar 3/4 cup would be fine. I didn't have two full cups of nuts but about  1 3/4, I like lots of pecans in my pie. If you want to add molasses you can add a tablespoon. Brandy can be left out completely.
I hope you try this pie it's so good.
I have these two other pecan pies blogged also

Pecan Pie (No Corn Syrup)

3 tablespoons melted or very soft butter
3/4 cup Lyle's Golden Syrup
1 tablespoon brandy or rum
1 1/2 teaspoons butter vanilla extract
pinch of salt

2 unbaked nine inch pie crusts

Beat eggs, butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients- except the pecans and pie crust, beat well. Stir pecans into the egg mixture. Pour equal amounts into the two pie crusts.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Turn oven down to 300 degrees. Bake 300 for 30-35 minutes, until mostly set. The pies will finish setting as they cool.Use a pie shield if the crust is getting too brown.

1 tablespoon of molasses can be added to the recipe

Blogger bio-
My name is Katherine. I started Give Peas a Chance blog in 2007 for my children (one child at the time) with the intention of printing a book full of family recipes and stories that they could take with them when they left home. Six years and 2 more children later, blogging has become such a gift from God, and a wonderful hobby that has connected me with so many people from all walks of life. Blogging is also a creative outlet that encourages me to do more of what I love – trying out and creating new recipes, exploring photography, and writing. Recipes, tutorials, school lunches, and more
