Ingredient List

  • 3 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 cup red Karo that is her term it means dark
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans or I prefer 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 9 " unbaked pie shell


  1. Mix all ingredients together adding the nuts last.
  2. Pour into a 9" unbaked pie shell.
  3. Place a crust shield around the exposed crust or you can make one with tinfoil. This will keep your crust from burning.
  4. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees until a knife blade inserted comes out clean. (about 30 minutes)

Recipe Notes

Don't overbake it or it will turn out like hard pecan candy on top.
