Pecan Pie
 
Makes 1 (9-Inch) Pie
Ingredients
  • ½ (14.1-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts
  • 1½ cups chopped pecans
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • ⅔ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll piecrust into a 12-inch circle, if needed. Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate, pressing into bottom and up sides. Fold edges under, and crimp as desired. Freeze until firm, about 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Sprinkle pecans in prepared crust. In a large bowl, whisk together corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, melted butter, salt, and vanilla until smooth; pour into prepared crust.
  4. Bake until edges are golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Cover and bake until filling is almost set and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 200°, 5 to 10 minutes more. Let cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
