Ingredients

  • 3 Pre-made Pie crusts (feel free to use your favorite recipe if you prefer to make your own)
  • 6 eggs + 1 for egg wash
  • 1 ½ c Sugar
  • 1 ½ c Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • ½ c Butter , melted
  • 4 c Pecan halves
  • 1 Tbsp water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350#&176;F.
  • Remove 3 pie crusts from packaging and let them sit out on the counter for about 15 minutes.
  • Place stack two of the pie crusts together and use a rolling pin to roll them into a 17"x 12" rectangle.
  • Spray 15"x 10" jelly roll pan with non-stick spray. Place the rolled out pie crust on the pan gently pressing the dough up the sides of the jelly roll pan.
  • Prick the bottom of the crust all over with a fork and place a piece of parchment paper over the bottom before filling pie crust with pie weights to keep it from puffing up.
  • Blind-bake the crust for 20 minutes.
  • While crust bakes mix together the 6 eggs, sugar, light corn syrup, salt, vanilla, and butter.
  • Take the 3rd piece of pie crust and use small leaf-shaped cookie cutters to cut out leaves to decorate the pie.
  • Once crust is done baking remove it from the oven and pour the 4 cups of pecans over the bottom of the crust.
  • Pour the filling over the pecans.
  • Add the pie dough leaves around the outer edge of the pie. Mix the single egg and 1 Tbsp of water together to make an egg wash and gently brush it over the leaves and the edge of the pie crust.
  • Using small strips of aluminum foil cover the edges of the pie that have already baked so they don't burn as the pie cooks.
  • Carefully place pie in the oven and bake at 325°F for 45-60 minutes or until the center doesn't jiggle anymore.
  • Enjoy!
