Less-Sweet Pecan Pie

Simply Recipes

2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T molasses
2 T melted butter
2 T flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups pecans, coarsely chopped

1 9-inch pie shell, unbaked, chilled for an hour if freshly made, defrosted for 10 minutes if frozen

Preheat oven to 375F. Spread pecans along the bottom of the pie shell. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over pecans. The pecans will rise to the surface of the pie.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until the filling has set. About 20 minutes into the cooking you may want to use a pie crust protector, or tent the edges of the pie crust with aluminum foil to prevent the pie crust edges from burning.

Remove pie from oven and let cool completely.
