Decadent Caramel Pecan Pie

Total Time

Prep: 45 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling


6-8 servings

Of all my pecan pie recipes, this is the most decadent. It oozes goodness. Even my two young sons, both hockey players, eat it slowly to enjoy every bite.


  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups ground pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine milk and egg yolks; stir into crumb mixture until dough forms a ball. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate; flute edges. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and syrup; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, egg whites and vanilla. Gradually add hot syrup mixture. Stir in pecans. Pour into pastry shell.
  4. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake 35-40 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack. Refrigerate leftovers.
