Pecan Pie

This recipe is based on the karo bottle but I add more nuts and cook it longer, I also most of the time mix light and dark syrup and even sometimes white sugar and brown. My family goes nuts over this pun intended.

Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes, cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.
