Ingredients

For the Crust:

2 teaspoons granulated sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 round refrigerated pie dough (half a 14-ounce package)

All-purpose flour, for dusting

For the Filling:

2 large eggs

3/4 cup dark corn syrup

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 cups pecans, chopped

For the Glaze:

2 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

  1. Make the crust: Stir the granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Unroll the pie dough onto a floured surface. Press the cinnamon sugar into the dough with your hands (try not to stretch the dough). Transfer to a 9-inch pie plate and crimp the edges. Refrigerate the crust until firm, about 1 hour.
  2. Place a baking sheet on the middle oven rack; preheat to 350 degrees F. Line the crust with foil and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake on the hot baking sheet until golden around the edges and set on the bottom, about 30 minutes. Remove the foil and weights and bake until crisp and golden all over, about 10 more minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool; leave the baking sheet in the oven.
  3. Make the filling: Whisk the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, vinegar, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in the melted butter, then stir in the pecans until evenly coated. Scrape the mixture into the cooled crust.
  4. Bake the pie on the hot baking sheet until set and bubbling at the edges, 55 to 60 minutes. (Cover the crust with foil if it darkens too quickly.) Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
  5. Make the glaze: Mix the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and milk in a small bowl with a fork or small whisk until smooth. Transfer to a small resealable plastic bag and snip a corner; pipe over the pie.
