Even our Test Kitchen team can’t figure out how the layers of our Four-Layer Pecan Pie magically come together...but they do...and the result is a contrast of creamy filling, crunchy pecans, and a flaky refrigerated pie crust.

Serves: 8

Preparation Time: 15 min

Chilling Time: 4 hr

Cooking Time: 40 min

1 refrigerated rolled pie crust (from a 15-ounce package)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar, divided
2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
4 eggs
1 cup corn syrup
1 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.
How about a cup of our special Mexican Coffee to wash down this delicious pie!

•If necessary, cover edge of pie crust with foil to prevent excessive browning after 25 minutes.

•If you like, you can top each slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of maple syrup.
