Light Georgia Pecan Pie with Honey Pecan Topping
- Serves: 8
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell or prepared rolled pie dough (formed into a 9-inch pie pan)
- Honey Crunch Topping (recipe follows)
Preheat oven 375 °F.
In mixing bowl, beat together eggs, sugar, corn syrup, flour, and vanilla until creamy. Stir in pecans.
Pour into pie shell, bake 40-50 minutes or until pie is set.
Honey Crunch Topping
In small pot, combine brown sugar, butter, and honey.
Cook over low heat until comes to a boil, stirring. Stir in pecans. Remove from heat.
During last 5 minutes of baking, remove pie from oven, spread topping evenly over top. Return to oven, broil until topping is bubbly and golden brown, watching carefully.
Terrific Tidbit: The pie may be made without the topping for an even more lightened version.
