1 pie crust, partially pre-baked
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 eggs, beaten
1 stick butter
2 cups pecans
Partially pre-bake a pie crust in a 9-inch pie pan according to instructions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, whisk together brown sugar, corn syrup, salt; add eggs until smooth.
Melt butter in a small saucepan. Slowly pour butter into the sugar mixture, and whisk to combine. Stir in pecans, then pour filling into the prepared pie crust.
Bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the filling is set. If the edges of the crust begin to turn too brown, briefly remove the pie from the oven and cover the crust with aluminum foil, then return to the oven. Once the filling is set, remove the pie and let cool completely before slicing. Great with whipped cream on top!
