How to Make It
Line pie pan with pie dough.
Whisk the eggs, sugar, golden syrup, butter, vanilla and salt together until combined. Set aside.
Evenly sprinkle 6 ounces of chopped pecans onto the crust and pour the filling on top. Bake for 20 minutes. Place the remaining 2 ounces of whole pecans in a border on the edge of the filling. Bake for 10 minutes, until the a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a cooling rack to room temperature before serving, 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
