Pecan PieServes 8-12
1 whole unbaked pie crust
1 cup white sugar
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
½ tsp. salt
1 cup corn syrup
¾ tsp. vanilla
½ cup melted butter (salted)
3 whole eggs, beaten
1 (heaping) cup chopped pecans
1. Place pie crust in a pie pan and crimp the edges. Next, mix sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs and vanilla together in a bowl.
2. Pour chopped pecans in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell. Pour syrup mixture over the top. Cover top and crust lightly, gently with foil. Bake pie at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Remove foil, then continue baking for 20 minutes, being careful not to burn the crust or pecans.
Note: Pie should not be overly jiggly when you remove it from the oven. If it shakes a lot, cover with foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until set.
3. Allow to cool for several hours or overnight. Serve in thin slivers.
