Brown Butter Pecan Pie

This Brown Butter Pecan Pie is INCREDIBLE. I love the nutty, brown sugar taste of pecan pie and brown butter is the perfect addition!

  • Bring pie crust to room temperature by putting it out on the counter for about 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Once butter is melted, continue to cook it over medium heat until it turns golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Grease a 9-inch pie pan and press the thawed pie crust into the pan.
  • Pour the chopped pecans evenly over the pie crust.
  • In a large bowl, mix eggs, Karo syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Stir until combined. Add browned butter.
  • Pour the mixture evenly over the pecans.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until filling has set up. If the crust looks like it's cooking too fast, cover it with foil.
  • Let cool completely before serving. Serve with whipped cream.
