About the Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 whole unbaked pie crust

  • 1 c. granulated sugar

  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1 c. light corn syrup

  • 1/3 c. melted salted butter

  • 3 whole eggs, beaten

  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 c. (heaping) chopped pecans

Preparation

Step 1


First, whip up your Perfect Pie Crust and place it in a 9-inch pie pan.


Step 2


Preheat the oven to 350°F.


Step 3


In a bowl, stir together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla.


Step 4


Pour the chopped pecans into the bottom of the unbaked pie shell. Pour the syrup mixture over the top of the pecans.


Step 5


Cover the top and crust lightly/gently with foil. Bake the pie for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, then continue baking for 20 minutes, being careful not to burn the crust or pecans. Note: The pie should not be overly jiggly when you remove it from the oven! If it shakes a lot, cover it with foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until set. The required baking time seems to vary widely with this recipe. Sometimes it takes 50 minutes; sometimes it takes 75!


Step 6


Allow to cool for several hours or overnight. Serve in thin slivers.
