This is the BEST Pecan Pie recipe! This has NO corn syrup but yet makes a deliciously thick and gooey filling. Plus it’s EASY so you don’t even need a mixer! 

I discovered this recipe way back by Chef John of food wishes. It is the ONLY pecan pie I make! It’s simply awesome and I love that there is no icky ingredients in it. I’ve even been asked for the recipe to this pie from guests and I know why! The top layer of this pie reminds me of a crisp brownie crust and the gooey filling is deliciously addicting! A total keeper in my recipe collection!

You should it’s very yummy! I used a generic brand called “bake house creations” that I purchased from Aldi, it worked great and you only need 1:)
