Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the pie crust and fit to 9″ plate. In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs until blended. Beat in the corn syrup, brown syrup, butter and vanilla. Arrange pecans in bottom of pie crust. Carefully, pour in the egg mixture over them. Bake in the oven until knife inserted 1″ from the edge comes out clean. Let cool. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Pecans are sooo good especially when they’re drenched in syrup. Top with homemade whipped cream and a homemade caramel glaze…Delightful!
