  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup of dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of butter (4 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
  • 4 ounces of pecans, halved
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust (either store-bought or homemade)
  • Cooking Directions

    In a small saucepan melt the butter and cool slightly.

    In a large bowl, combine and stir the sugar, the syrup and the vinegar.

    Add the melted butter and the beaten eggs. Pour the mixture into an unbaked pie crust.

    Place the pecans on the top of the mixture and crust. Start on the edge and work your way inside.

    Then take a fork and push down slightly on each pecan so it is in the mixture a bit.

    Bake at 350 degrees F. until firm, which is about 1 hour.

    Let cool and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
