Pioneer Woman’s Pecan Pie

#1 I Love Pecan Pie

#2 A Pecan Pie Recipe from The Pioneer Woman (THIS is going to be GOOD!)

#3 I watched The Pioneer Woman make this on a Thanksgiving Throwdown with Bobby Flay and she kicked his butt!

I normally don’t eat many sweets, I just like to make them and take pictures and take a little bite and give the rest away. I had 3 slices of this pie. 3! SO You KNOW its good!

  • 1 whole Unbaked Pie Crust (I Used “Perfect Pie Crust” Recipe
  • 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Corn Syrup
  • ¾ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ⅓ cups Melted Butter (salted)
  • 3 whole Eggs Beaten
  • 1 cup (heaping) Chopped Pecans

First, whip up your pie crust using “Perfect Pie Crust” found here: Recipe

Next, mix sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl.

Pour chopped pecans in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell


Pour syrup mixture over the top.

Cover top and crust lightly/gently with foil. Bake pie at 350º for 30 minutes. Remove foil, then continue baking for 20 minutes, being careful not to burn the crust or pecans.

NOTE: PIE SHOULD NOT BE OVERLY JIGGLY WHEN YOU REMOVE IT FROM THE OVEN. If it shakes a lot, cover with foil and bake for an additional 20 minute or until set. Required baking time seems to vary widely with this recipe. Sometimes it takes 50 minutes; sometimes it takes 75! (Mine was the one that took 75)

Allow to cool for several hours or overnight. Serve in thin slivers.
