  • 1 unbaked pie crust - 9 inch
  • 1 cup Karo (light or dark) Syrup
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup whole pecans
  • 1 cup whole pecans, chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine karo syrup, vanilla, eggs, butter, sugar, and cornstarch and stir until smooth.

Next, mix in chopped pecans and directly pour into the prepared pie crust. Arrange whole pecans around the edge in circles.

Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Use foil to avoid over browning of the crust by covering.

Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until the filling is slightly jiggly.

Cool completely before serving. Top with cool whip if desired.
