  • 100g/4oz Kerrygold Unsalted Butter
  • 100g/4oz golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 225g/8oz brown sugar
  • 3 free-range eggs, beaten
  • 1 x 245g/8┬Żoz shop-bought shortcrust pastry case
  • 285g/10oz pecan nuts, halved


1 Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

2 Place the butter, golden syrup, vanilla extract and sugar into a heavy-based saucepan over a low heat.

3 When the butter has melted, remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes.

4 Add the beaten eggs to the mixture and stir well.

5 Arrange the pecan halves evenly in the pastry case and carefully pour over the syrup mixture.

6 Place into the preheated oven and bake for 40-50 minutes - the pie will be golden-brown, but the filling should still be slightly soft.
