Description

Your eyes might just roll back into your head when you taste the sweet, custardy, sugary, almost caramely goodness of this pie. It’s simple. It’s hearty. It’s basic. And it’s just so good.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Unbaked Pie Crust (I Use "sylvia's Perfect Pie Crust" Recipe
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Corn Syrup
  • ¾ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ⅓ cups Melted Butter (salted)
  • 3 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • 1 cup (heaping) Chopped Pecans

Preparation

First, whip up your pie crust using “Sylvia’s Perfect Pie Crust” found on Tasty Kitchen.

Next, mix sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl.

Pour chopped pecans in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell.

Pour syrup mixture over the top. Cover top and crust lightly/gently with foil. Bake pie at 350º for 30 minutes. Remove foil, then continue baking for 20 minutes, being careful not to burn the crust or pecans.

NOTE: PIE SHOULD NOT BE OVERLY JIGGLY WHEN YOU REMOVE IT FROM THE OVEN. If it shakes a lot, cover with foil and bake for an additional 20 minute or until set. Required baking time seems to vary widely with this recipe. Sometimes it takes 50 minutes; sometimes it takes 75!

Allow to cool for several hours or overnight. Serve in thin slivers.

I was one of those that had to cook it for 75min! I wonder if it is because I am at a high altitude. Also mine bubbled over a lot. Still tastes great though especially served with the Whiskey Cream Sauce.

This is so very wonderful, and I never really cared for pecan pie until I tried this recipe!

rma910 – it should be light corn syrup and meme32 I used light brown sugar. You can see what Ree used by going on the “related blog post” listed above.

I have searched and searched for a perfect Pecan Pie Recipe. Over the years it seems like I’ve tried hundreds! I made this one last night and sent some to work with my hubby today. He called and said..”Stop the search, this one is perfect!” Can’t get a better recommendation than that!

I am a pie novice so I tried this hoping that it would be easy to make and come out tasting delicious…I was right! This pie is super easy to make and so yummy although super sweet so little pieces go a long way! Everyone raved about it.
