Pecan Pie

This is my mother's recipe. While it involves a fair bit of work checking the “doneness” of the pie, it is a reliable way to make a rather tricky pie.


  • 80 ml butter (or margarine)
  • 160 ml brown sugar
  • 240 ml corn syrup
  • 2 ml salt
  • 3 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Melt butter in saucepan. Remove from heat
  3. Add sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Stir.
  4. Add eggs and stir.
  5. Cover bottom of crusts with pecans 1).
  6. Pour mixture over the nuts.
  7. Place pie in oven and turn heat down to 190°C.
  8. Check every 5 minutes. When crust is browned, turn heat down to 150°C and cook until a toothpick (or fork) inserted in the center comes out clean (40–80 minutes).
Avoid too many pecans, as you might overflow the crust in the next step.
