-12 oz of Pecan Halves/Pieces (1 large bottle/can)
-4 Large Eggs-1 Cup Brown Sugar (dark or light brown works)
-1/3 Cup Brown Sugar Syrup/Maple Syrup
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/3 cup butter/margarine, melted

  1. Pre-bake/blind bake the pie crust by following the instructions on the package to get it perfectly crisp and flaky (no sinking or wrinkling needed). Let it cool completely.
  2. Once the pie crust is cooled, pour the can/bottle of pecan pieces/halves evenly over/into the bottom. (If you don't have bottled/canned, you can use fresh, just measure 5-6 oz by weight.)
  3. In a bowl, beat/whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, melted butter/margarine, & vanilla.
  4. Slowly pour the egg/butter/sugar/vanilla mixture over the pecans, being careful to evenly distribute it over the whole surface so the pecans are completely covered & soaked into the batter.
  5. Bake in the pre-heated oven (425F/215C) for about 45-60 minutes until set and the top is rich, golden brown.
Let cool completely and the pecan pie should have an incredible, concentrated sweet, rich, gooey nutty flavor. Enjoooy 🤗
