How to Make Penny's Pecan Pie
- In a large bowl, stir the eggs well until they are mixed, but do not beat them.
- Stir in the Karo syrup, the dark brown sugar, and the melted butter. Blend as well as possible without beating the mixture
- To make a really pretty pie (and impress your guests) you can carefully arrange pecan halves, rounded side up in a nice tight pattern on the bottom and sides of the pan. Then, very gently spoon the filling over top the pecans. The pecans will rise to the top, mostly keeping your lovely pattern.
- Bake the pie for 10 minutes at 425°. Reduce the temperature to 350° and bake 45 more minutes until the filling is set. Cool completely on a rack. This is a very rich pie, cut the pieces small!
