  • 3/4 cup white Karo corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 3 eggs well beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecans chopped, halves or a combination of chopped and halves
  • 1 unbaked pie shell


  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cream syrup with butter.
  • Add sugar and eggs.
  • Beat all thoroughly, then add vanilla and pecans.
  • Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake in for about 30 minutes until well set.


I have seen some people say that you achieve a better flavour with a half-and-half mixture of light AND dark corn syrup. Light syrup alone may taste "too sweet" (if you believe in such a thing), while the dark provides a richer flavour.
Whatever syrup you choose to use, the consensus seems to be that it HAS to be Karo to really get this pie right.
