  • 1 Cup whole unbaked pie crust
  • 1 Cup white sugar
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 Cup corn syrup
  • ¾ tsp vanilla
  • Cup melted butter (salted)
  • 2 Pcs eggs, beaten
  • 1 Cup Chopped pecans (heaping)


  • To begin, make a pie dough with Sylvia's Perfect Pie Crust.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a mixing dish, combine the sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla.
  • In the bottom of the unbaked pie shell, sprinkle the chopped pecans.
  • Over the top, pour the syrup mixture. Cover the top and crust with foil, lightly/gently. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake the pie for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes, watching out not to burn the crust or pecans. When you take the pie from the oven, it should not be too jiggly! Cover with foil and bake for a further 20 minutes or until set if it rattles a lot. This recipe appears to have a broad range of baking times. It takes 50 minutes sometimes, and 75 minutes other times!
  • Allow several hours or overnight to cool. Slice into small slivers and serve.
