So I never really liked pecan pie because it was always way too sickeningly sweet. I didn't even really care for the flavor until I tried these pecan pie bars from Starbucks. They didn't have a ton of sugar in them and so were pretty tasty.

Then my mom found this recipe that cuts out so much sugar thanks to the cream cheese. It's the most delicious pecan pie I've ever tried!

Here's the recipe (got it from the Katie Brown Workshop show on the Create channel):

Pecan Pie
Makes one 10" deep dish pie, Serves 12


1 package cream cheese, softened
½ + ¼ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
¾ teaspoon salt
4 eggs
One 10 inch deep dish pie crust
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chopped walnuts

Get Cookin'

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, 1-teaspoon vanilla, and salt. Once mixture is smooth, add 1 egg and mix well.
3. Spread cream cheese mixture into the base of the pie shell. Combine remaining eggs, sugar, vanilla, corn syrup, pecans, and walnuts. Pour mixture over cream cheese.
4. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until center of the pie is set.

Thanks Tasha_Mae for my siggy!!

I'll definitely have to try this because DH won't eat it for that reason, because it's too sweet. Hmmm...now I'm wanting pecan pie...lol
