Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the beaten eggs, sugar, corn syrup, melted butter and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Fold in pecans. Pour the mixture into the pie shell, smoothing out the top with the spoon so pecans are evenly distributed.
Carefully place the pie in the oven and bake until a deep nut brown and a knife inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean, 50 – 55 minutes.
Remove the pie from the oven to cool for 30 minutes. When cool, slice and serve as is or with vanilla ice cream.
