Pecan Pie

Gail Welch


My Aunt Lucille submitted this recipe for our family cookbook. I prefer to use the light Karo but either way it is good. My mother also made this pie for many years, now my husband makes them. I just gave him the recipe and a few pointers. This is the easiest pie to make. Great for beginners.
