  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, coarsely broken
  • 1 unbaked deep dish pie shell


  1. In saucepan boil sugar and corn syrup together for 2 to 3 minutes; set aside to cool slightly.
  2. In large bowl beat eggs lightly and very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the eggs, stirring constantly.
  3. At this point I like to strain the mixture to make sure it’s smooth and lump free.
  4. Stir in butter, vanilla, and pecans and pour into crust.
  5. Bake in a 350°F oven for about 45 to 60 minutes or until set.
