A neighbor recommended a pecan pie from one of the local pecan stores. It was fantastic, not cloyingly sweet like any other pecan pie I had tried. This is my approximation. The browned butter enhances the pecan flavor without making the filling greasy. A note: I made the pie this year using dark corn syrup, to get a darker filling. If you don't like overly sweet pecan pie, use regular corn syrup, the dark syrup made it overly sweet, which overwhelmed the flavor of the pecans.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the butter in a pan on medium heat and let it brown, then cool for a few minutes, so as not to cook the eggs in the filling.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl, mix well.
  3. Pour filling into crust.
  4. Bake at 325 for 30 - 45 minutes, until edges are firm and center is almost set.
