Bake For The Cure Baking Contest! Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of this week's Bake For The Cure baking contest! For the second recipe, I have to bake a family-favorite recipe using ACH Foods products. Well, guess what? One of my family's favorite desserts is Pecan Pie, and we always use Karo Corn Syrup to make it. So, easy choice there! This made for a good excuse to bake a pecan pie!  For an added twist I put some chocolate chips in; after trying chocolate pecan pie a few years ago at a restaurant, my family has come to really enjoy the extra chocolate flavor!  So, in case any of you all get hungry and want to try this out (this is the best pecan pie recipe I've ever made), here it is!

Pecan Pie

Ingredients:

3 Eggs
1 cup Karo Dark Corn Syrup
1/2 cup Sugar
2 tablespoons Butter, melted
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Chopped Pecans
1 Unbaked Pastry Shell (9-inches)
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips (optional)


Directions:
In a small bowl, lightly beat eggs. Stir in corn syrup, sugar, butter, vanilla and salt. Add pecans and mix well.

Sprinkle chocolate chips in the bottom of pie shell; pour pecan mixture over chocolate chips.  Cover edges with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove foil; bake 20 minutes longer or until done (a knife inserted near the center should come out clean). Cool; store in refrigerator.

Karo Corn Syrup-a key ingredient to delicious pecan pie!

In the oven!
All done!

As I said, this is one of my family's favorite desserts (especially my husband and daughter H!)  This recipe always turns out a perfect pie, too!

So, I need your help again, neighbors! Please leave me some comments! Let me know any twists you can think up to add to this recipe, or share your favorite pie recipe! Anything you want to share, I want to hear!

If I added anything at all, it would be coconut, but I think this would taste best just as it is! I love the chocolate chips on the bottom!

I have never made Pecan Pie, but your recipe makes me want to whip one up!

Tammylyne said...

My mom use to make a pecan pie with a secret ingredient that would have everyone wondering what wwas in it.
It was orange zest. I know it sounds odd but believe me it is awesome!

Try adding a 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest.

Cherene said...

mmmm! Perfect timing to share this recipe! Fall weather, warm pie, coffee... too good. Usually there is too much goo in a pecan pie for me (I know how can you have too much of a good thing!) Baking it with less in a tart pan or something would be a way to get the flavor without too much of the sugar rush.

Christine said...

This is a great recipe to share with Thansgiving right around the corner.

My hubs doesn't like pumpkin so this could be a great alternative.

Hannah said...

I don't like pecan pie, but my husband loves it. I've never tried it because it always looked so hard, but this looks easy and I'll definitely be trying it. Thank you!

Laura said...

I like pecans, and I like pie, but for some reason I can't stand pecan pie. My husband likes it though, so maybe I'll try this recipe. I think I'd like it more if there was a variety of nuts in it, like maybe some chopped walnuts or almonds.

I have never tasted a cooked pecan pie.
my bama used to make them but I always ate the filling with a spoon before it was baked.
Now, when I have a choice a always choose pumkin. I think I need to branch out.
Thank you for recipe.
