Pecan Pie

First time trying this pie. I have heard good things.

Tried the uncooked filling and its sickly sweet. Very indulgent. Cooked, its even sweeter. I love sweet things but this might be a bit too much for me even with ice cream. 2 pies, one turned out better than the other. Verdict-Failure.

having left it a couple of days the flavour has got so much better and less sweet. i was too hasty in calling it a failure

Heres the recipe I used from here
  • 2 cups (200g) shelled pecan halves
  • 1 cup (250ml) golden syrup, or if you must, white corn syrup
  • 1 cup (200g) firmly packed¬†dark brown sugar (the darker the better)
  • rounded 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons (75g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature, slightly beaten
  • 9-inch¬†unbaked deep-dish pie shell
  • Vanilla ice cream
