    Cookbook author Holly Clegg walks through the steps to make a slimmer version of a classic pecan pie.

    Holy Clegg: Thanksgiving is almost here but let's make it a little healthier, with a light Georgia pecan pie with a honey crunch topping. To make the pie, all you need to do, is start with your crust, you can always buy a refrigerated crust and I am going to show you how to make it look like it came from the bakery.

    It's as simple as crimping your edges, and you don't even have to bake it ahead a time. And for the pecan pie luscious filling, so simple to make. Six ingredients. Two Eggs, 1/4 cup Sugar, 1 cup light Corn Syrup, 2 tablespoon all purpose Flour, 1 tablespoon Vanilla and 1 cup of chopped Georgia Pecans. You want to mix it all together with a whisk, pour it into a pie shell, bake it at 375 degree for 40-50 minutes, and right before it's done, we are going to take it out and make our decadent topping. All you need is 3 Tablespoon light Brown Sugar, 1 Tablespoon Butter, 3 tablespoon Honey and 1 cup of Georgia Pecan halves. Mix it all together in a little pot, comes to a boil, put it on top of your pie, pop it in the oven on boil but watch it carefully so it doesn't burn and you take it out to a show stopping desert. Have a Happy healthy Thanksgiving.
