200g of sugar in the raw

30g of butter, melted

1 whole vanilla bean pod, scraped

180g of whole or halved pecans

1 (9-inch) unbaked deep-dish pie crust

Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F.

In a large bowl using a spoon mix the eggs, syrup, butter, sugar and vanilla bean. Stir in pecans.

Pour filling into pie crust.

Bake in the middle of your oven for one hour or maybe a few minutes longer.

Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.

The pie can take a while to set up and one sure fire way of knowing it is done is to use your food thermometer and when the center reaches 95°C (200°F) – it is ready.
