Classic Pecan Pie – Made Easy!

  • Author: Krista
  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x
  • Category: dessert
  • Method: Baking


  • 1 cup Karo® Dark Corn Syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter – melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 +1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans plus whole pecan to decorate the top
  • 1 frozen deep-dish pie crust – I like Marie Callender’s 



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and place a baking sheet in the oven.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla, stir to mix well. Then stir in the chopped pecans and pour the mixture into the pie crust.
  3. Using the whole pecan halves make a design on the top of the pie. Optional, but I like the extra flare. 
  4. Place on the baking sheet and bake on the center rack of the oven for about 60 minutes. Cool for at least 2 hours on a wire rack before serving.

    Note: The pie is done when the center reaches 200°F. If the pie crust is over-browning, cover edges with foil.
