PLEASE! Does somebody have a pecan pie recipe that has a SMOOTH center? I've tried dozens of recipes and they all have the custard-like center!

  • Karo syrup has the recipe for the kind you are looking for. I don't make pecan pie, but I had an ex from the south and his mom made a kick butt one. She got the recipe from Karo syrup. Maybe check their website?

  • My Favorite Pecan Pie

    9 inch unbaked pie crust
    1 C light corn syrup
    1 C sugar
    3 eggs, slightly beaten
    1/3 C butter, melted
    3 tsp flour
    1/3 t salt
    1 t vanilla
    1 C (heaping) pecans halves

    Heat oven to 350 degrees.

    Combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, flour, salt, and vanilla; mix well. Pour filling into prepared pie crust. Springkle with nuts.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 45 – 50 minutes until center is set. Cool
