This recipe contains gluten free notes.It's best to make the filling the night before, because you want this to chill really well. Prepare the pecan pie cake second.
- 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 3/4 cup dark corn syrup
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 4 egg yolks
- 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 3 TBSP butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (the real stuff)
- Whisk together the first 6 ingredients in a heavy 3-quart saucepan until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly, and boil for 1 minute, or until thickened. Remove from heat; whisk in butter and vanilla. Place a sheet of wax paper directly on surface of mixture to prevent a film from forming, and chill at least 4 hours.
