  • 1 c. pecan halves
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c. light corn syrup
  • 1 tblsp. melted butter or regular margarine
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 tblsp. flour


  • Arrange nuts in pie shell.
  • Beat eggs; add and blend corn syrup, butter and vanilla.
  • Combine sugar and flour. Blend with egg mixture and pour over nuts in pie shell. Let stand until nuts rise, so they’ll get a nice glaze during baking.
