Texas Style Pecan Pie


  • 2 deep-dish unbaked pie shells
  • 6 eggs (beaten)
  • ½ cup butter (melted)
  • 2 cups brown sugar (packed)
  • 1¾ cups corn syrup
  • 2¼ teaspoons vanilla
  • 2½ cups pecans (chopped)


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Slowly and thoroughly mix together the eggs, butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla. Pour the mixture into the two pie shells.

As the mixture will not "rise" like some pies, you can fill the shells higher than usual, but not so high that they boil over and leave a sticky, burned mess in your oven.

Cover the pie with pecans.

Bake for about an hour.
