    Is there a Healthy Pecan Pie?

    So I'm getting ready to do the mad dash to make everything in time to get it on the table for the Turkey Day Lunch & got to thinking about ingredients... mainly the ones in Pecan Pie since I was going to do the grocery run today. What hit me is that Karo syrup I typically use is PURE HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP. One of the main things I am trying to completely cut from my life. I love pecan pie & there is no way I can't make one, or I would NEVER hear the end of it. But is there a healthier verison, minus the HFCS?

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE any recipes or links anyone has to share.

    Thanks.

    Cranberry Pecan Pie (has sugar, but no corn syrup): Cranberry Pecan Pie :: Green Living at Care2

    Pecan Pie V - Allrecipes

    Unbeatable Pecan Pie - Allrecipes (calls for a cup of maple syrup, which may be very expensive)

    Old-Fashioned Honey Pecan Pie - Allrecipes (Honey instead of corn syrup)

    Chocolate Pecan Pie VI - Allrecipes (looks pretty untraditional)

    Also, dark Karo syrup apparently has no HFCS (per Karo Syrup - Lifes Sweetest Little Secret). Since the liquid sugar does help keep the filling from getting gritty, you might try adding a bit of dark Karo to one of the no-corn-syrup pies if the first try comes out texturally weird.

    a few years ago - I did a pecan praline pumpkin cheesecake that was modified to make it lower in fat and incredible delicious

    it was either gourmet magazine or bon appetit that had the original recipe and I j ust tweaked it to make it a little healthier...

    pecan pie though isn't technically pecan pie without the karo...
