Pecan pie

Cook Time: 1 hour

Serves: 6-8


  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust


1.Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2.Beat together eggs, sugar and salt in a large bowl until smooth.

3.Blend in corn syrup, vanilla and butter until uniform.

4.Stir in pecans.

5.Pour pie filling into shell immediately after adding in pecans. Note: If using a commercial pie crust (which is slightly smaller in capacity than homemade pie crust), fill shell up just to the edge of the crust.

6.Put pie in over and reduce heat to 350 degrees. Bake for 40–50 minutes, until knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge of the pie comes out clean. When the pie is done, the pie filling will be puffed up but will later settle as the pie cools. Let pie cool down before serving.
