3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup dark corn syrup

How to make Traditional Pecan Pie in a Jar

Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Put the pecans in a baking sheet and spread evenly.

Step 3: Place the baking sheet inside the preheated oven and bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until it is lightly toasted.

Step 4: Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let it sit on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.

Step 5: Place a saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Add in the dark corn syrup, light corn syrup, and sugar. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes.

Step 6: Remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for 10 minutes.

Step 7: Add eggs in a large bowl and whisk until smooth and creamy.

Step 8: Gently transfer the syrup mixture into the bowl while whisking to refrain the eggs from solidifying.

Step 9: Add in the vanilla extract, butter, and salt. Whisk until the batter is completely mixed and smooth.

Step 10: Apply cooking spray into 8 small jars.

Step 11: Scoop the dough and press them into the prepared small jars. In each jar, there should be a layer of toasted pecan. (It tastes really good!)

Step 12: Scoop the batter and leave a 1/4-inch rim on top of each jar.

Step 13: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes or until the top part turns dark.

Step 14: Remove from the oven and let it sit on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.

Step 15: Serve and enjoy!
