DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spread 1/2 cup of the pecans on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Place the roasted nuts in a food processor and process until smooth and buttery.
  • Add the flour and pulse until incorporated.
  • Scrape into a large bowl and set aside.
  • Heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until it starts to foam and turns a light brown.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, eggs, vanilla, and browned butter to the nut paste and stir until well blended.
  • Fold in the remaining 5 cups pecans.
  • Pour the filling into the pre-baked pie shell.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the filling is slightly puffed and the crust is golden brown.
  • Transfer to a rack to cool.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
