Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust (homemadeor readymade)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsatled butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups (or thereabouts) pecan halves

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line your pie plate with your pie crust, crimp edges as desired and chill until ready to fill. Note: make sure to use an 8-9” pie plate for this pie; using anything bigger than 9” will result in a not full pie!
  2. Whisk eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, salt, and cornstarch in a large bowl.
  3. Place the pecans in a single layer in the bottom of your pie crust. Pour the filling over the top. The pecans will rise to the top of the pie.
  4. Place the pie on a cookie sheet. Tear off 4” long strips of aluminium foil (about 1 1/2” wide) and wrap the edges of the pie crust so it doesn’t brown too quickly.

Bake for 10 minutes at 425°F. Then lower the temperature to 350°F and bake for 20 minutes. At that time, carefully remove the foil strips, then bake for another 12-16 minutes until the pie is puffed and browned.

Remove from oven and cool completely before serving

Enjoy!

Vitae, because health is more than just the absence of illness!
