  • 1 1/4 cups pecan pieces
  • 1 (10 inch) pie crust, pre-baked
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar, divided
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus 4 tablespoons for caramel
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, for caramel


Preheat the oven to 375°.


Put 1 1/4 cup pecan pieces in pre-baked pie shell. In a large bowl whisk the light corn syrup, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3 eggs, vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 6 tablespoons melted unsalted butter together until smooth. Pour the custard mixture over the nuts and bake the pie until the filling puffs and rises above the edges of the pie shell, about 30 minutes. Carefully remove the pie from oven and let it cool completely before serving. Drizzle the pie with Cinnamon Pecan Caramel and serve.



Cinnamon Pecan Caramel:


Mix the 2 cups brown sugar, 4 tablespoons butter, heavy cream, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1 cup chopped pecans together in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is smooth.

I would use HONE

I would use HONEY instead of the corn syrup as it is SO bad for you....I probably would use 1/2 cup of honey tho....
They say corn syrup is the worst thing you can eat....I never buy anything with corn syrup in it and I always use honey in place of sugar no matter what I make.....
