Adapted from Guy Fieri for Food Network Magazine

Serves: 8


1 sheet refrigerated piecrust (half a 15-ounce package)
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 1/3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
2 cups toasted pecan halves
Freshly whipped cream, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll the piecrust and place in a 9-inch pie plate. Fold the overhang under and crimp the edge with a fork or your fingers.
  2. Whisk the corn syrup, brown sugar, salt, butter and vanilla in a medium bowl. Lightly beat the eggs in a small bowl, then whisk into the corn syrup mixture.
  3. Finely chop 1/2 cup pecans and spread evenly over the piecrust. Roughly chop another 1/2 cup pecans and mix into the corn syrup mixture, then pour the filling into the crust. Arrange the remaining 1 cup pecans on top in a decorative pattern.
  4. Bake the pie until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Cool completely on a rack. Serve with whipped cream.
