For the Filling:

  • 5 tbsp salt free butter melted AND COOLED
  • 3 egg 3 huge eggs room temperature, beaten
  • c honey ~300 g
  • 2 tsp vanilla pure
  • ½ tsp no salt or sea salt will work
  • 1 c pecan pieces or chopped pecans, I like the great bite of the pieces
  • 1 pie crust use pie crust recipe


  • Prepare pie crust and bake 6 minutes. See separate recipe.
  • Preheat oven to 325 F for the pie that will be ready to go in a few minutes.
  • Using a big bowl, add all of the filling ingredients EXCEPT the pecans and whisk until smooth.
  • Fold in the pecans gently.
  • Pour the filling into the crust. Fill it to the brim and carefully put the pie in the oven.
  • All the pecans will float to the top, creating a layer of candy with gooey buttered honey underneath
  • Add SHIELD to prevent crust burn.
    Bake for about 25-40 minutes.

  • After 25 minutes, start checking it by gently pulling out the rack to see if the pie is jiggly. When it is “set” it will still have a bit of wiggle, but barely!
  • Cool well before eating (refrigerate for an hour or two) to get a really “candy-like” pie texture with a crunch on top and a luscious bottom!
