    I used the recipe from the Karo syrup web site:

    http://www.karosyrup.com/pecanPie.asp

    Used pre-made pie crust (I'm not particularly adept at making pastry dough). The filling takes all of about 2 minutes to make.

    It's cooling right now. Looks great. Smells wonderful. :)

    Technically, I don't think pecan pie can be too sweet. It is like eating ooey-gooey-semi-solid sugar anyway :)

    Sure, you may have to eat less at a time, but that just means it lasts longer ;e

    Pecan pie by definition is extremely sweet. I've been told that you can tone down the sweetness...and improve the flavor profile...by adding 1-2 tablespoons of BOURBON to the filling mix. ;f

    Here is a recipe from the Texas A&M university's Extension Service web site:

    http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/plantanswers/recipes/pecanrecipes/bourbon.html

    BOURBON PECAN PIE

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    3 eggs, beaten
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup butter, melted
    1 cup light corn syrup
    2 tablespoons bourbon
    1 cup pecan halves
    1 9-inch pie crust, unbaked

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare pie shell.
    Mix eggs, sugar, salt, and butter. Add syrup and bourbon and stir in pecans. Pour filling into pie shell. Bake for 50 minutes or until the mixture is firm in the center. Cool before serving.

    Yeah - I know that pecan pie is sweet - I was just wondering if it was sweet or toooo sweet ;P

    Many years ago I did have a piece of pecan pie that was double if not TRIPLE sweetend. My teeth still feel gritty! :drool: ;0
