    *Note: Jaine tells me that it’s important to use white sugar, rather than brown (flavour)…and I have discovered that agave syrup is a great substitute for corn syrup.

    I also cut the syrup portion by 1/3 and increased the pecans to make up the volume. For me personally, this makes a very satisfying pie.
