Crustless Pecan Pie



Introduction

Pecans are full of healthy oils and protein. This pie has no artificial sweeteners but still contains less sugar than a standard pecan pie, and losing the crust makes it a lot lower in calories (but alas, still high enough that a reasonable serving is 1/16 of the pie). The extra eggs up the protein to help you stay satisfied with this healthful dessert. Pecans are full of healthy oils and protein.

Ingredients

    2 cups pecan halves (or pieces)
    1 cup dark corn syrup (or maple syrup)
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    5 eggs
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 Tbsp unsalted butter
    pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Toast the pecans in a skillet or in the oven until hot and just browned. Set aside on a cool plate.

In a saucepan, mix remaining ingredients, whisking constantly, over medium heat until well-combined with the butter melted and the mixture quite warm but NOT boiling (bubbles may form at the edges, or not).

Add pecans and stir to coat them.

Pour pie into a lightly-greased pie-plate. Bake 35-40 minutes, until pie doesn't jiggle in the middle.

Makes 1 pie, 16 small servings.
