This is a Pecan Pie I have been making for years and years (first time I ever made it was in 1958).
Now days I use Splenda though instead of sugar.
This is the one my family still loves.
It is good, has a great flavor. If you decide to give it a try I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!!

    eggs

How to Make Cin's Easy Pecan Pie (1958)

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring sugar and corn syrup to a boil.
    Stir in butter.

    Beat eggs just until yolks & whites are combined.
    Slowely pour hot mixture over eggs stirring vigorously as you do.

    Stir in vanilla, salt and pecans.
    Mix flour & sugar together and sprinkle over bottom of pie shell, pour filling into pie shell.

    Bake in 350°F oven for 45 minutes (cover exposed part of pie shell last 15 to 20 minutes so it does not over-bake). Enjoy!!!

    NOTE:
    I use the Light Corn Syrup (not just "light in color"), it has 33 1/3 less calories than regular corn syrup.
  2. I've used this recipe to make different pecan pies:
    Fot this pie I used this same recipe, to make a "Pecan Pie Tart" in a deep dish round cake pan.
  3. It not only was good eating with a deeper filling, but also made a different looking pie.
    Smaller around but deeper and more crust under and around the filling (we like a thicker crust instead of a thin crust).
  4. oooh, and I also crushed the pecans instead of using the halves as in the pie up above (in the regular pie plate).
