    I am making a pecan pie and found I do not have any dark corn syrup.  Can I substitute molasses for dark corn syrup in the pie?

    I would think the taste of molasses would be overpowering - JMHOSurprise

    Oh no, no, no...do not sustitute molasses for dark corn syrup.  As Tasty said, the molasses is too over-powering.

    As a new bride back in 1981, I tried it myself and found out first hand that's not the way to go.

    You don't have to use dark corn syrup. I use white corn syrup in my pecan pies and prefer it. Once I ran short of light corn syrup and used 1/4 cup of sorghum molasses and it was OK, but there's a big difference between sorghum molasses and black strap molasses. Black strap will take the hair off a dogs back, it's so strong. I wouldn't use all molasses even if it was the mild sorghum type. The flavor conflicts with the pecans.
