Orange Spice Pecan Pie
A gooey pecan pie with the delicate flavor of orange and clove baked in. The citrus adds a little flavor without overpowering the rest of the ingredients.
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter melted
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tablespoons of orange juice
- Zest from one orange
- 1/3 teaspoon of Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp cloves
- 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans
- 1 9-inch deep dish or 10-inch unbaked pie crust
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Toast the pecans for a few minutes in the oven being careful not to scorch them; set aside.
Whisk the eggs; add the corn syrups, orange juice, and melted butter.
Add the sugar, vanilla, orange zest, cloves and salt.
Add in the pecans.
Bake for 1 hour at 350F. The middle of the pie will still jiggle slightly.
Cool for 2 hours.
