  • 1 pie crust recipe
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup light corn syrup (312 grams)
  • cup packed light or dark brown sugar (142 grams)
  • cup unsalted butter , melted (75 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ¼ cup pecan halves (250 grams)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Roll out one half (see Note) of the prepared pie dough on a lightly floured surface, into a rough 15-inch circle. Transfer to a 9-inch pie dish and trim edges to a 1-inch overhang. Tuck overhang under and use your thumb and finger to create a crimped edge. Place pie shell on the prepared sheet pan.
  • In bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, or in a bowl with a hand mixer, combine the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix on medium high speed until well combined. Stir in the pecans.
  • Gently pour the mixture into the prepared pie shell. Bake until the edges are completely set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45-55 minutes. Let cool before serving, serve warm or at room temperature with whipped cream, if desired.
