  • 3 eggs

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups (6 ounces) pecans

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust


  1. Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon. Stir in pecans.

  2. Pour into pie crust.

  3. Bake at 350 degrees F on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes.

  4. Cool for 2 hours before serving.


Pie is done when center reaches 200 degrees F. Tap center surface of pie lightly – it should spring back when done. For easy clean up, spray pie pan with cooking spray. If pie crust is over browning, cover edges with foil.

High Altitude Adjustments:

Reduce sugar to 2/3 cup and increase butter to 3 tablespoons. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
