Ingredients

5 Large Eggs

1 c. Corn Syrup

1 c. Granulated Sugar

1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

2 oz. Unsalted Butter

1 tbs. Myers Rum

1 Egg Yolk

1 1/2 c. Pecans

1 Pie Crust

­Preparation

1.) Pre-bake your pie crust by placing it in your pie pan and crimping the edge of the dough. Bake for 6 minutes at 425°F. Shake the pan to deflate, cool, and repeat until the crust is evenly golden brown and looks crisp.

2.) Warm the sugar, corn syrup, butter, vanilla, and rum in a pot. (Do not heat above 140°F)

3.) Slowly pour sugar mixture into the whole eggs, whisking as you pour to temper the eggs. If you pour the hot sugar mixture into the eggs too fast they will scramble.

4.) Brush the pie crust with the egg yolk and pour 1 ½ cups of pecans into the pie shell.

5.) Pour batter over pecans and bake immediately at 375°F for 10 minutes. Then drop the oven temperature to 300°F and cook for another 10 minutes or until set.
