Better Pecan Pie

A neighbor recommended a pecan pie from one of the local pecan stores. It was fantastic, not cloyingly sweet like any other pecan pie I had tried. This is my approximation. The browned butter enhances the pecan flavor without making the filling greasy.A note: I made the pie this year using dark corn syrup, to get a darker filling. If you don't like overly sweet pecan pie, use regular corn syrup, the dark syrup made it overly sweet, which overwhelmed the flavor of the pecans.
