Instructions

  1. In large mixing bowl, combine butter, eggs, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and vinegar, mixing well.
  2. Stir in pecans. Set aside.
  3. To prepare fillo crust, use a 9-inch tart pan. Cut a 9-inch circle out of wax paper and use it as a pattern to cut through 17 sheets of fillo. Cut through all the layers of the 17 sheets of fillo.
  4. Overlap the sheets in the pan, buttering the sheets as you fit them into the pan. Pour filling over the sheets.
  5. Take the remaining 3 sheets of fillo, brush lightly with butter, and cut small triangles to use to decorate the top of the pie.
  6. Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 50 to 60 minutes until golden brown.
  7. After pie cools, garnish with powdered sugar and whipped cream.
