  • 1 cup Karo® Corn Syrup Light or Dark
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans plus extra for decoration on top of pie
  • 1 9" pie crust (use your favorite or mine)


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • Decorate your crust with dough cut outs or keep it simple with a crimp!  I like the look of using a fork to give the edges of my crust a little detail.  So easy the kids could do it! 
  • Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Pour filling into pie crust.
  • Once the pie mixture has been added to the pie crust, use extra pecans to arrange over the top of the pie.
  • Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes. Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.
