Pecanless McCandless Pie

I made this for my friend Tucker McCandless who loves pecan pies but likes the gooey pie part best, and also Trixie (Lexi Jones) whom I love dearly and has nut allergies.  I made her one of these for her birthday.

1 cup light Karo syrup
1 cup dark Karo syrup(or molasses/pure cane syrup)
1 cup brown sugar
½ tsp vanilla
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tbs corn meal
1 tbs plain flour
7 eggs
½ tsp salt
6 tbs butter (melted)
2 unbaked pie shells (thawed)

Preheat oven at 350º, place pie shells in oven for 5 mins. Mix dry ingredients, then mix wet ingredients. Combine and divide mixture between two cooled pie shells. Bake for 40 - 45 mins., until pies have turned dark brown and puffed up and done inside. Remove from oven carefully, wait 30 mins before slicing. You can jiggle the pies slightly while in oven to see if they're done. You can also tap the top to see if it is still liquified inside.

This is my friend Tucker McCandless (on the left) and myself over at Carver's Orchard buying produce.  His Mom Cassie couldn't resist this photo op.

  1. what I like about this is the 800 calories a cup less that pecans add to the recipe.
