Serves: 8


  • 1 unbaked pie shell (9 inches)
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1⁄8 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1 1⁄4 cups pecan halves


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat eggs. Whisk in corn syrup, salt, vanilla, brown sugar, and melted butter, blending well. Stir in pecans. Pour pecan mixture into unbaked pie shell.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes longer. If crust becomes too dark, cover the edge with a protective pie shield or fashion a ring of foil to lightly cover the pastry edge. When pie is finished, the edge of the filling should be slightly puffed and firm, and the center should move only slightly.
