  • 1 9 Inch Pie Crust (store bought or homemade)
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar (packed)
  • 1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 Cups Pecans (more if you to decorate the top)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and place the unbaked crust into a 9 inch pie dish.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over low heat. Stir for 3 to 5 minutes, just until the mixture is combined and the sugar melts. Remove from heat.
  • Add the corn syrup, vanilla, salt, eggs, and pecans to the sugar mixture. Stir to combine, then pour into the unbaked pie shell. Top with additional pecans if desired.
  • Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the filling sets and the crust is golden brown. If the crust appears to be browning too quickly, cover the pie with a foil tent.
  • Allow the pie to cool for at least an hour before serving.
