He loves salted peanuts!
All the guests loved it, so this hit recipe was passed on to the guests,

- 1/2 tsp
- 1/4 c

1Pre-heat the oven to 350 .
Partially prebake the pie shell , so the bottom does not get soggy.
Cool the shell and mix the filling.
Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and brown sugar in a large bowl until evenly blended.
Add the corn syrup, melted butter,vanilla and salt and beat again,
briefly, until evenly blended.
Stir in the peanuts.
Carefully pour the filling into the COOLED pie shell.
2Bake the pie on the center oven rack for 30 minutes
Rotate the pie 180 degrees and bake 20-25 minutes more.
When done, the pie will "set" meaning that it will not move
in waves when the pie is nudged.
Thoroughly cool the pie on a rack.
Serve at room temperature or cover loosly with a tented foil
and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving.
Makes 8-10 servings.
3.........Note: Rotating the pie 180 degrees midway through the baking helps to bake goods evenly and balances the surface for browning.
Because the back of most ovens is typically hotter than the front.
........NOTE: Try dusting your pastry nd rolling pin
with flour,or lay a sheet of plastic wrap over your pastry, then roll on to the rolling pin.
