REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I made a pecan pie from a regular recipe and used SPenda instead of sugar and sugar free maple pancake syrup instead of corn syrup. I served this and no one could tell the difference. Just use sugar free pancake maple syrup instead of "lite" syrup. No need to add water to the syrup.

I am Diabetic Type II. I made this recipe and it was great! I made the simple syrup, but since I wanted some maple flavor, AND because I wasn't sure about adding 1 cup water-1/2 cup Splenda and 1 cup of Lite Maple Syrup..., So...I used 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 cup Sugar Free or Lite Aunt Jemimah syrup. In any event, I wanted to keep the liquid content the same. You need to bake for at least 50 min to let the ingredients 'rise' and the pecans brown. Even an hour wouldn't hurt if the pecans aren't cooked too brown by then. Can't wait to eat it! I wouldn't mind experimenting again !

Is the pie shell deep dish or regular? The recipe doesn't specify.

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
Unless it says deep dish specifically, I usually assume a regular crust.

After making this for a couple of fellow workers I made this for a church thanksgiving bake sale and it was a hit with both. I made the simple syrup by mixing 2 parts water to 1 part Splenda as suggested by another reviewer. This worked out great and brought the sugar level down.

So is this recipe only great because people were confused about the syrup?

you can make light syrup by boiling 2 parts water with 1 part splenda to make however much you need.

Can you give an example of a "lite syrup" other than corn syrup so I know what I would be looking for? Thanks.

You need to clarify the "lite syrup" a bit more for diabetics. We now count carbs and it will vary with the syrup used. It would be great it that was stated with the recipe.

For the reviewer concerned with the syrup in the recipe:
The recipe says LIGHT SYRUP (as in diet, sugarfree), not light CORN syrup. There are many syrups out there that are made with Splenda, and these will work fine in the recipe.

This recipe is good, but I wouldn't let anyone that is a diabetic eat this. There is light corn syrup aka sugar in it.

I work in a Health Care Facillity and we used this Pie for a Special Meal . My staff tasted this pie and thought it was wonderful, in fact my cook wanted the recipe because she said it was better than Regular Pecan pie
