Pecan is one of my favorite pie's in the whole world! Interestingly, I had never even tasted a Pecan Pie until about 5 years ago. However, after that first bite there was no turning back.... I was addicted!
This recipe comes down from my Aunt's finest old time recipes. It was the first Pecan Pie that I ever baked and the first Pecan Pie that I ever tasted. I have made a couple changes to the original recipe, however, this an absolutely devine pie.
PERFECT PECAN PIE
4 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups dark corn syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tab. + 1 tsp. melted butter
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
Single uncooked pie crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix, roll out pie crust and place in a pie pan.
Place the pecan halves into the bottom of the crust. Mix all of the pie ingredients in a medium size bowl, then pour into the pie shell. Bake at 375 degrees for 60 minutes.
Let filling set up by cooling for several hours or overnight before serving. Do Not cover while cooling and Do Not place in refrigerator, to avoid failure of the filling setting properly.
