The Pioneer Woman's Pecan Pie

Need a quick, easy last minute recipe?!? Make this is the Pioneer Woman's Pecan Pie recipe. So yummy!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Hope you have a wonderful time with your family this week.

Pecan Pie

1 unbaked pie crust
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp. brown sugar
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup corn syrup (i used light)
1/3 cup melted butter
3 eggs, beaten
¼ tsp. vanilla
1 heaping cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Lay pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate. Trim and decoratively fold the edges. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs and vanilla. Whisk until well-combined.

Pour chopped pecans in an even layer on the bottom of the unbaked pie shell. Pour the syrup mixture over the top of the pecans. Allow to stand about 20 seconds to let pecans float to the top.

Bake for 50 minutes, being careful not to burn pecans or crust. (if you need to, lay some foil over the top to prevent burning) Allow to cool for several hours or overnight before serving.
