Prep Time: 10 Min
– 1 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup – 3 eggs – 1 cup sugar – 2 tablespoons butter, melted – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) pecans – 1 unbaked 9-inch deep-dish pie crust
Cooking time: 70 MIN
Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This ensures your pie cooks evenly from the moment it's placed in the oven.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the Karo® Light Corn Syrup, eggs, granulated sugar, melted butter, and pure vanilla extract until thoroughly combined. The mixture should be smooth and uniform in color, with a silky texture.
Gently stir in the chopped pecans, distributing them evenly through the mixture. This step incorporates the nutty flavor throughout the pie, ensuring every bite is packed with pecan goodness.
Pour the filling into the unbaked pie crust. Be sure to smooth the top with a spatula for an even fill, which will prevent uneven baking and create a picture-perfect pie surface.
Place the pie into the preheated oven and bake for about 60 to 70 minutes. You’ll know the pie is done when the edges are set and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. If the pie crust is browning too quickly, tent a piece of aluminum foil over the top to protect it.
Once baked to perfection, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for about 2 hours. This cooling period allows the filling to set, creating the ideal texture for slicing.
