About the Recipe


  • 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


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.
