  • We use the recipe from Karo.com. You can use either light or dark karo syrup. Light will give you a more mild flavor and light appearce to the pie, dark will give you a stronger flavor and darker appearce. I perfer dark myself. :)

  • Allrecipes.com has some pretty awesome pecan pie recipes. I can't remember the exact one I used before, but it turned out great! Look for ones with the highest ratings.

  • You can add 3 squares bittersweet chocolate for a choclate pecan pie, or add cream for a creamier texas style pecan pie, but I am a purist. I think the "classic" pecan pie is the best.

  • I think my DH will like the classic best. He is not a big sweet eater so pecan pie is his favorite. adding the chocolate might be too sweet for him
