Pecan Pie runny

    Why are the center of my pecan pies runny?

    If I cook them longer than an hour @ 350deg. to get the inside firm, the crust burns (yes, even when I cover the crust edges).

    I don't know if I should reduce the liquid ingredients (corn syrup, sugar, butter)?  Or possibly cook it at a lower temperature for a longer time?

    Any ideas?

    You may want to check the temperature of your oven with a reliable oven thermometer. If it is running just a little bit hot, even 25 degrees, it can make a difference in the results of your pie; I have had the same problem in the past. I wouldn't reduce the ingredients if you are using a recipe that you know has turned out fine before. I have, however, had problems with some recipes that just didn't ever turn out the way I wanted them to, and so had to switch to another. But I would still check the oven temp first. Hope you have better luck.

    My mom's pecan pie recipe (which I've used with great success for lots of years) does include 3 T. flour.  I think this helps the pie firm up.  If you are interested, I'll be happy to post the recipe.
