Easy Pecan Pie without the corn syrup

I haven’t made a lot of pies in my day, mainly because they aren’t one of my favourite things to eat. If I’m going to eat dessert, there better be chocolate in it, jus saying! lol But Hubs loves pie and after a long string of birthdays we were tired of cake, we decided on a Pecan Pie for Father’s Day.

Now, to figure out how to make the easiest Pecan Pie out there! lol I already had a Tenderflake pie shell in my freezer so I knew I was totally cheating on the crust and found this recipe over at AllRecipes.ca that sounded simple and tasty and it turns out it was! I liked that it did not have any corn syrup in the recipe, where most of the other recipes I looked at did. I adjusted the cooking temp based on some comments and I think this is the best way to go about it below. You could also go ahead and add 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips! Told ya, dessert should have chocolate! 😉

  1. This looks really, really good!
    I make everything homemade and I’ll be the first to admit that those tenderflake crusts are good!

  2. Oh yeah, have you tried browned butter? You cook the butter until it gets golden brown and caramel coloured and then you add it. It’s like butter extract! My favourite baking discovery ever.

    I would die for a slice of that. My oldest is allergic to pecans to the tune of not breathing, so we can’t have them in the house. :/

    Oh my gosh, I’d like chocolate chips in my pie please! Lol It looks SO good and I actually don’t think I’ve ever made a pie without corn syrup before so I’ll have to try this one!

    Excellent! I just made pecan pies (with corn syrup) for my husband and dad for Father’s Day since it’s a favourite of theirs. I had forgotten how much corn syrup goes in them! I will definitely be trying this recipe. I’d also never considered adding chocolate chips to it….a;though I’m not sure if it necessarily needs any extra sugar….

      lol it probably doesn’t! I make a pecan square at christmas that we add chocolate chips to and I love it, so I thought it would work well here too

  6. I don’t make pie very often either, but this has tempted me! Perfect Fall recipe. I pinned it too.
