Recipe from Bake or Break: http://www.bakeorbreak.com/2012/12/deep-dish-pecan-pie/
As traditional as this pie is. It's got a couple of interesting things going for it. First off, it has a rich & buttery cream cheese crust. Secondly, for those of you who love that gooey filling of pecan pies, there’s more of it than usual in this beauty.
This will most likely find it's way into being an impressive addition to your holiday dessert offerings, along with becoming not a few people's favorite!
Wrap the outside of a 9-inch springform pan in aluminum foil.
Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and sugar, and beat well.
Shape dough into a flat disc. Cover and chill 15 minutes.
Roll dough into a 13" circle. Carefully transfer dough to prepared pan. Press dough into bottom and up sides of pan. Cover and chill.
Preheat oven to 375F.
Whisk together corn syrup, brown sugar, and melted butter. Add eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, and salt, and stir well. Stir in pecans. Pour filling into crust.
Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300°. Bake 2 hours and 15 minutes or until set. If necessary, shield pie with foil to prevent excess browning.
Cool completely on a wire rack. Cover and chill. Remove sides of springform pan before serving.
Despite its somewhat daunting appearance, this is actually a simple pie to make. The only potentially tricky part is the crust. It can be a bit difficult to transfer the dough into the pan. Also, be sure not to skip the step of wrapping the pan in foil. It will help prevent a big mess.
This is a deep, rich offering that's sure to please many but can be very filling to some. Small slices work well and will make it go further than a regular 9-inch pie.
