Ingredients

  • 1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie crust
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 4 ounce un-salted butter , melted
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cup or more Pecans (See notes )
  • Ice cream for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Unroll pie crust. Cover the bottom a 9-inch pie plate. Trim edge, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Fold overhang under and lightly press against rim of pie plate, then crimp decoratively.
  • Lightly prick bottom all over with a fork. Chill until firm, at least 30 minutes (or freeze 10 minutes).
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat add butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar to deep skillet. Quickly stir to combine the butter and sugar.Whisk in corn syrup and salt.
  • Add eggs into a medium bowl and lightly beat-do not over beat. Then whisk in corn syrup mixture.
  • Place pecans at the bottom of the pie pan and pour corn syrup mixture evenly over pecans.
  • Bake on a  baking sheet for about  50 minutes to 1 hour. To prevent  edges from browning too soon ,cover  the crust with foil and/or a pie crust shield for about 30 minutes . This would be the perfect time to add decorative pecans , if desired.  Then remove foil or cover  and continue baking for the remainder of the time or until pie is set.  
  • Remove from the oven , cool  completely before serving. About 3-4 hours .
  • Serve pecan pie warm, or at room temperature with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Notes

  1. If adding the decorative top, add about 1 cup half pecans. Add about 1/2 -1 cup chopped pecans at the bottom and the rest to decorate the top. Add halfway through baking, as soon as it sets.
  2. Let your pie completely set and cool down for at least two hours before slicing it.
  3. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
