Four-Layer Pecan Pie

I would have never thought adding cream cheese
to a pecan pie recipe, but it sounds delicious!

Can't wait to make this pie :)

  • refrigerated rolled pie crust (from a 15-ounce package)
  • (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • eggs
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cups chopped pecans
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll pie crust and place in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate, pressing crust firmly into plate.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 egg. Beat at low speed until smooth; set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl, beat 3 eggs. Add remaining sugar, the corn syrup, and remaining vanilla; mix well.
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture in pie crust. Sprinkle with pecans and slowly pour corn syrup mixture over pecans.
  5. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until center is set. Let cool, then refrigerate 4 hours or until ready to serve.
