  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 9-inch pie 1x


Sweet and salty…nutty and chewy…classic and simple…This is going to be the best pecan pie you’ll ever have!



1 1/4 c. pecan nuts

1 unbaked pie shell (9-inch)

1 3/4 c. white sugar

1/4 c. each corn syrup (dark) and butter

1 tbsp. water (cold)

2 tsp. cornstarch

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla extract

3 large eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the corn syrup, butter, sugar, cornstarch, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a full boil and remove the saucepan from heat.
  3. Beat eggs in a bowl then add the syrup mixture. Add the pecans, vanilla, and salt and pour into the pie shell.
  4. Bake for about 50 minutes or until filling is set.


  • Check the pie while it’s baking so as to avoid burning the crust or even the pecan nuts. If it is still over jiggly, bake it some more.
  • It would be best to allow the pie to cool off before serving it. You can even leave it to cool overnight if you want to.
