I know everyone out there has a pecan pie recipe, but this is the best I have ever baked and I have tried many. Most recipes call for 1/2 tsp vanilla, this one calls for 1 1/2 tsp.

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Ingredients

1 stick
butter, melted
3/4 c
granulated sugar
1 c
dark karo syrup
1/4 tsp
salt
1 1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
3 medium
eggs, slightly beaten
1 c
chopped pecans
1
9 inch pie crust

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt stick of butter in glass bowl. Blend sugar, syrup, salt and vanilla and add to butter. Blend well.
2
Add beaten eggs slowly to sugar mixture stirring gently as you pour them in. Fold in pecans and pour into unbaked pie shell.
3
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and then bake at 325 degrees for additional 30 to 40 minutes until middle is set.(if the middle is a little shakey after baking time, pie will firm as it cools).

You may want to put a pie shield over edges of crust after it browns to keep it from getting to brown. You can buy them at Wal Mart or most department stores.(Very handy to have)
