  • 1 pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Roll out the pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Crimp the edges as desired.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dark corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined.
  4. Stir in the pecan halves until they are evenly coated with the mixture.
  5. Pour the pecan mixture into the prepared pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  6. Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.
  7. If the edges of the crust start to brown too quickly, cover them with foil halfway through baking.
  8. Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
  9. Serve slices of pecan pie with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat!
  10. Enjoy your homemade dream pecan pie with friends and family, and savor every delightful bite.
