2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups pecans, coarsely chopped
1 9-inch pie shell, chilled for an hour if freshly made, defrosted for 10 minutes if frozen. (See pie crust recipes.)
1 Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread pecans along the bottom of the pie shell. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over pecans. The pecans will rise to the surface of the pie.
2 Bake at 375°F for 45-50 minutes until the filling has set. About 20 minutes into the cooking you may want to use a pie crust protector, or tent the edges of the pie crust with aluminum foil to prevent the pie crust edges from burning.
3 Remove from oven and let cool completely.

The best recipe is the Original Karo Syrup recipe as follows;
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla

1 1/4 cup pecans
1 cup Karo ( or other corn syrup) light, dark, or mixed
1 (9 inch) unbaked or frozen deep-dish pie crust***
2 Tbsp butter (or margarine) melted
1.) Pre heat oven to 350 0F
2.) In a large bowl stir first five ingregients until well blended. Stir in pecans. Pour into piecrust.
3.) Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between the center & the edge comes out clean. Coll on wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
*** To use Prepared Frozen Pie Crust. Use a 9 inch deep-dish piecrust. Do not thaw. Preheat oven and a cookie sheet. Pour filling into frozen piecrust. Bake on cookie sheet (insulated cookie sheet is not recommeneded.)
I know this is not good English, but this is straight off of the bottle of syrup.Source(s): Karo Syrup Bottle (circa 1962)
