Butterscotch Salted Pretzel Pecan Pie

Printprint recipe
Pinpin recipe
  • Yield: 1 9-inch pie
  • Prep Time:  45 minutes
  • Bake Time: 1 hour
  • Chill Time: 4 hours total

Ingredients

  • For the pie crust
  • 1-¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • ¼ cup ice water
  • ½ teaspoon vinegar

  • For the filling
  • 1 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-¼ cups pecan halves
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips
  • ¾ cup lightly crushed pretzels
  • 1 large egg, for egg wash
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Pie Crust
  2. Whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add in the cold and cubed butter and use your fingers to press it into the dough. Keep working it in until you reach small pea-sized lumps all throughout.
  4. Stir the vinegar with ¼ cup ice water and pour into the dough. Mix with a wooden spoon. It should become thick and damp but still somewhat crumbly. It it’s still too dry, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until it starts to form a shaggy dough.
  5. Pour it out onto a lightly floured surface (crumbs and all) and work it into a smooth ball by mounding the pieces and folding over itself several times. Flatten into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Once chilled, let it rest at room temperature for about 15 minutes. Then roll it out and form it into your 9″ or 10″ pie dish. Place the shell back into the refrigerator while preparing the filling.

  7. Pecan Pie Filling
  8. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  9. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Karo® Light Corn Syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Mix until smooth and well combined.
  10. Stir in the pecans, butterscotch chips, and pretzels to evenly coat.
  11. Pour into the chilled pie shell and spread around the pecans to create an even filling. Top with a few whole pretzels, if desired.
  12. Brush the edges of the crust with an egg wash and sprinkle with sea salt.
  13. Bake for about 1 hour, to 1 hour 10 minutes. Check the pie with about 30 minutes to go and if it’s browning too much, cover the top with aluminum foil and continue to bake. The pie is finished when the crust is golden brown, the edges are barely bubbling, and your whole kitchen has a nutty and caramelized aroma.
  14. Allow the pie to cool completely at room temperature for about 2 hours, then move to the refrigerator to chill for about 2 hours to set.
  15. Slice and enjoy!
