  • 1 Homemade pie crust my recipe makes 2 crusts, so you can freeze the other crust, or cut the recipe in half.
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup salted butter , melted
  • 3 eggs , beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans


  • Prepare my perfect pie crust recipe, up to step 9.
  • In a large bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Next, pour the chopped pecans into the bottom of your unbaked pie crust.
  • Then pour the sugar syrup mixture over the top of the pecans.
  • Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes.  After about 30 minutes of cooking, check the pie and as the edges or the crust start to brown, put a large piece of GREASED tinfoil over the top of the pie. (I just spray mine with cooking spray so that the pie filling doesn't stick to it).
  • You will know your pie is finished when you can shake it gently and it is not overly jiggly.  If it jiggles a lot when shaking, continue cooking until the center is more set!


To Make Ahead:
Bake the pie 1-3 days in advance, allow it to completely cool, then cover and store it in the refrigerator. I like to remove it from the fridge at least one hour before serving.
