Need help with Pecan Pie recipe please
I am looking for a specific pecan pie recipe. you know how many pecan pies have the from top to bottom,
1st layer -pecan layer
2nd layer- gooey stuff
3rd layer- crust
well my aunt makes one that throughout the whole pie is like the layer of pecans, it doesn't have the gooey part. She will not give me the recipe and I wanna make it because its the only kind of pecan pie i like. and since my grandfather passed away, my aunt wont make it anymore. Please does anyone have a recipe for that kind of pecan pie?
i would really appreciate the help thank you so much.
I find that if you reduce the amount of goo ingredients and increase the amount of pecans, you end up with a texture more like what you're talking about. You can also mix the goo with chopped pecans and then put a layer of whole ones on top, which will help keep the chopped pieces submerged.
There's a product from the UK that I've found in the US called "Lyle's Golden Syrup". It comes (came?) with a recipe for pecan pie that had a minimium amount of gooey filling. I used a deep dish crust and the filling barely filled half way up the crust... so I guess the recipe was for a standard 9" crust. Tasted good, but I preferred a thicker layer of custardy goo.
