hmmmmThe southerner in me wants to say: "Dont mess with pecan pie!" "It's good like it is, no fruit needed"
I guess though, nothing ventured--nothing gained. Fig would be interesting, cant really imagine it. Are we talking alot of fruit or just a hint?
What kind of sugar are you using? pure cane, light brown, or dark brown?
If you use only light corn syrup, I would definately use dark brown sugar. Pecan pie needs the mollasses to really be good. I think that the flavor would complement fig well anyway. (Not that this is an endorsement of adding fruit to pecan pie)
well, let us know what happens.
