  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups Granulated {White} Sugar
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted Butter melted
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 3 cups Chopped Pecans
  • 1 9 ″ Single Pie Crust {Homemade or Pillsbury Refrigerated Crust}


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Carefully roll pie crust out into 10″ Cast Iron Skillet, then flute or crimp edges. {I used the end of a fork to make a little pattern around the edge}
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until light and fluffy.
  • Add Sugar, Flour, Melted Butter, Vanilla, Salt, Lemon Juice, and Corn Syrup.
  • Mix thoroughly, then stir in Pecans.
  • Pour mixture into pie crust shell.
  • Bake for 40 – 45 minutes, or until set and golden.
  • Important: Cool on wire rack for a minimum of 3 hours, to allow pie to finish setting. For best results, I prefer to let mine set overnight.


Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator, and eaten chilled or brought to room temperature before eating.
