Cooking time
45 minutes
Total time
1 hour, 15 minutes

Ingredients

3  
eggs
1 3⁄4 cup
sugar
1 1⁄4 cup
chopped pecans
1⁄4 cup
dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon
water
1⁄4 cup
butter (chopped into small chunks)
2 teaspoon
cornstarch
1 teaspoon
vanilla extract
1⁄4 teaspoon
salt

Crust

2 1⁄2 cup
unbleached flour
1 teaspoon
sugar
1 teaspoon
salt
2  
sticks of unsalted butter (chopped)

Instructions

Crust Instructions -- Mix flour, salt and sugar in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Slowly mix or blend in the cut-up butter until coarse. Add in 4 tablespoons ice water and use hands to knead until the dough comes together. Add in one tablespoon of extra water, as needed, as you go along. Split the dough in half, and flatten the halves into disks. Wrap disks separately in plastic; refrigerate for 1 hour. Once dough has cooled, roll the pin over the crust with flour. You can then unroll the crust over your pie pan. Trim any excess and use your fingers to form the rim around the pie pan. Use extra dough for another pie if desired. Simply roll out almond paste on wax paper until flat. Line pie crust with thin layer of almond paste until entire base is covered. Trim any excess. Pie Instructions -- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine the sugar, butter, water, corn syrup, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat once mixture reaches a full boil. Beat eggs until frothy in a large mixing bowl. Beat in cooked mixture. Slowly stir in salt, vanilla, and pecans, and then pour into pie shell. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until filling is set.
