Pecan pie

On their own pecans are a high-cal nut, but combine them with sugar, butter, and corn syrup, and you've got a potentially deadly dessert. A single slice will cost you more than 500 calories, 37 grams of fat, and 26 grams of sugar. Still, there's no reason to skip dessert—try baking something lighter instead. This apple pie has less than a quarter of the fat per slice. And you're getting additional fiber from the apples as a bonus.
