Yummy Pecan Pie!

Janet Scott Recipe

By Janet Scott JanetLeeScott

I made this for my sister's birthday at her request, she said that she couldn't remember having such a delicious Pecan pie!
You can make this pie several different ways by using different nuts. If you like Walnuts, make this using Walnuts instead of Pecans!
The Vanilla Bean is optional but it adds a unique and incredible flavor.
Enjoy!

Cook Time:

Ingredients

1 c
light corn syrup
3 large
eggs
1 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
real unsalted butter (melted)
1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp
maple extract
1 1/2 c
pecans
1/2
vanilla bean (optional but wonderful!)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Prepare one 9" pie crust
2
Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, maple and vanilla extract and vanilla bean using a spoon until well blended.
Stir in pecans.
3
Pour into your pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 60 to 70 minutes.

Ovens vary, so always check when your time comes close.
4
Test your pie after about 50 minutes with a thermometer it should be at 200 degrees in the center of your pie.
I love doing this, makes you feel confident that your pie is done and not under or over cooked.

    I have a very good pecan pie recipe I have been making since the 1950's
    It was the very first pie I ever made...still love that recipe, even though I do try others now and then (yes, I do have it posted on JAP already).

    I was talking to a lady who sells pies at the farmers market. We started talking about Pecan pie, I told her how expensive they can be to make. She didn't think so...I was shocked knowing how much pecans cost! I asked her where she gets her pecans then we got into our recipes. I told her I use 1 1/2 cups pecans and then she scolded me saying I should only use 1/2 cup and the pie would be awful using that much.
    Well, I didn't listen and make it my way. No complaints coming at my door! HA!
