For crust:
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons ice water
For filling:
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
3 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup chopped pecans

To make the crust:
Mix the first three ingredients in a food processor. Add butter slowly, using the on/off switch until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Blend enough water to form moist clumps of dough. Remove dough and form into a ball, then flatten dough into a disk. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill for one hour. Roll dough on a floured work surface to a 13" round size. Transfer to a 9" pie pan. Trim and crimp the edges. Chill in freezer for 15 minutes.
To make the yummy pie filling:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk the first five ingredients in a large bowl until blended. Place organic pecans in the bottom of the pie shell. Pour the filling mixture into the pie shell.
Bake the pie until set, or until a knife inserted into the center of the pie comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
