Black-Bottomed Pecan Pie (with no corn syrup!)

IT’S #PIEWEEK!

Hello, sweet friends. I’m currently in London, eating and walking, hoping and praying I see a corgi. A cab driver informed me that he’s never seen a corgi in real life and that made me very sad for him. I think corgi-spotting will be unlikely.

This pie is the first of the handful of pies I’ll be sharing this weekend. And at the very end of the week, I’ll be doing a lil’ round-up of my favorites of all-time. There are quite a few pies on this blog.

First up: Black-Bottomed Pecan Pie…with NO CORN SYRUP.

Are you a corn syrup hater? You probably are. Everyone is and I get it. I do.

Since I use it so sparingly, I’m not that weird about it. There are some instances when it offers results that are pitch perfect. Examples: Fudge sauce (the sheen that corn syrup provides is dreamy) and marshmallows (man, oh man, it’s just a must).

I do hate corn syrup in ice cream. Oh good gracious. I can actually taste the acid in the corn syrup in the back of my throat. It’s awful. A lot of ice cream makers have started to include corn syrup because it provides such a glorious and smooth texture to ice cream. I get it. I do.

But there are other instances where corn syrup can easily be swapped out and I take those opportunities any chance I get. Namely, pecan pie. And in this case, walnut pie…with bitters because YAAASSSS!
