  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1-½ cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-½ cups pecans (choose the nicest ones from the bag)
  • 1 prepared pie shell (or make your own crust)


Preheat oven to 425F degrees.

Mix all the ingredients together on one bowl.

Into the prepared pie shell, spread pecans evenly, filling as many gaps as possible. Gently pour the syrup mixture over the nuts. Press down any nuts that are floating to keep them from burning during cooking.

Place pie dish on a baking tray to catch any drips during cooking and bake at 425F degrees for 15 minutes. Turn down the heat to 325F and cook for an additional 40 minutes.

Pie should jiggle a little in the middle when you take it out of the oven. It will continue cooking out of the oven.

May be served lightly warmed if desired and with a little freshly whipped cream.
