Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 55 to 60 minutes
Cool Time: 2 hours
Yield: 8 servings

1 cup Karo Light OR Dark Corn Syrup
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) pecans
1 (9-inch) unbaked deep-dish pie crust

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon. Stir in pecans. Pour filling into pie crust.

Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes. If pie crust is over browning, cover edges with foil. Pie is done when center reaches 200°F. Tap center surface of pie lightly - it should spring back when done.
