Ingredients

  • CREAM CHEESE FILLING
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • PECAN FILLING
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup light
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • CRUST
  • 1 ¼ cup pecans chopped
  • 1 9-inch unbaked pie crust

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • CREAM CHEESE FILLING: With a mixer on medium speed, beat all the cream cheese filling ingredients together until creamy. Set aside.
  • PECAN SYRUP FILLING: In a large bowl, whisk together by hand the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • CRUST: Spread the cream cheese filling over the bottom of the unbaked pie crust.
  • Sprinkle the pecans over the cream cheese filling.
  • Gently pour the Pecan Syrup Filling over the pecans.
  • Cover the edges of the pie with a pie shield.
  • Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes. It is supposed to jiggle just a little bit in the center. It will firm up later.
  • Cool the pie on a wire rack for 30 minutes, then chill the pie in the refrigerator for about 3 hours before serving.
  • Store the pie covered in the refrigerator.

EXTRA TIP:

SERVINGS:  This is a decadent, rich pie so I cut it into 12 pieces rather than 8!
