Southern Traditonal Pecan Pie
I grew up in an area where everyone had a pecan tree in their yard so we used them in everything. They are my personal favorite nut.
This is a recipe I have made for years and it never disappoints. Hope your family likes it as well.
In a medium sauce pan, bring sugar and corn syrup to a slow boil and cook until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
Turn heat off and add butter and stir until melted.
Let mixture cool slightly.
Add cooked mixture to eggs and add vanilla. Mix well.
Stir in pecans then pour ingredients into unbaked pie shell.
Take small piece of aluminum foil and wrap the edges of the pie crust to prevent it from getting too dark. (be careful as pie is still runny and is hot).
Put back in oven and cook until pie is set or until a knife inserted into center of the pie comes out clean, about 20 more minutes.
