Browned Butter Pecan Pie



  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 9-inch pie shell, unbaked
  • Real whipped cream


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Over low to medium heat, cook butter in a saucepan, watching closely but not stirring, until golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. Do not burn.
  3. Pour browned butter into bowl and set aside.
  4. In food processor, blend corn syrup, honey, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and salt until smooth.
  5. Add browned butter; blend again.
  6. Add pecans and process with just a few quick on-off-pulses.
  7. Pour mixture into pie shell.
  8. Bake at 435 degrees for 10 minutes; lower heat to 325 degrees F; bake another 40 minutes. Center of pie will still seem a bit liquid when removed from oven; it sets up further as it cools. Let cool completely.
  9. Serve with a generous topping of real whipped cream.
