- 1 pie crust
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 1/2 cups pecans
Line one pie pan with the pie crust. Pinch top of pie crust all the way around to create a pretty edge.
Stir pecans into filling.
Pour pie filling into pie crust & bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Bake another 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
After pie is in oven, check on caramel & give it another stirsies for good measure.
After about 45 minutes, you will have your own lovely like this one. Notice the sugary filling that boiled up over the crust giving it a shiny glazed sheen. I added some more pecans after baking for that extra touch right after I took the pie out of the oven.
I finish up the caramel sauce with about 3 tablespoons of creme de cacao. Just stir it in when caramel is finished browning.
I went a little nuts over this pie. It became dinner. That’s what happens when foodie bloggers get so excited about what they’re blogging. They forget about lunch, finish their work at 5pm and eat dessert for dinner. I’m feeling pretty lucky after this pretty pie. Maybe I’ll find my double boiler and food processor blade.
