Baking Success Or Baking Mess


8 (4 ounce) glass canning jars
1 cup (4 ounces) pecan halves
2/3 cup Crown® Lily White® or Golden Corn Syrup
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Whipped cream
Crumbled graham crackers, vanilla wafers OR cookies, optional


Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray interiors of jars with cooking spray. Add 2 tablespoons of pecans to each jar.

Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon. Pour a scant 1/4 cup filling into each jar. (Tip: Combine the corn syrup mixture in a 2-cup or larger glass measuring cup to pour easily into the jars). Place filled jars on a baking sheet or cake pan.

Bake on center rack of oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Pies are done when centers reach 200°F.

Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.

Serve each with a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with crumbled cookies if desired.

Note: If using another size jar (other than the 4-ounce size called for), be sure to leave about 3/4-inch between the pecan filling and the rim of the jar to avoid boilovers.
