This recipe substitutes honey and maple syrup for corn syrup, which typically is non-organic and includes genetically engineered corn. These ingredients are wholesome and natural, but this is not a low-fat or low-calorie pie. Cutting the pie into 10 to 12 slices provides just enough, without being too much of this rich dessert.

Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400° F. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with whisk until yolks and whites are completely blended. Add sweeteners, vanilla and salt, plus oil or butter. Fold in chopped pecans.

Pour into pie crust and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° F and continue baking for an additional 25 minutes, until set but not dry.

Best served warm, but may be cooled to room temperature. Top with nonfat frozen vanilla yogurt or ice cream!

Notes

If you prefer, substitute melted and cooled butter for the sesame oil.
