My favorite pecan pie

I've been baking pies for our Thanksgiving celebration. I had several requests for this pecan pie. Many years ago a friend in Michigan gave me this recipe and we have enjoyed it ever since. It's the best I have ever tried.

USDA Pecan Pie

1 unbaked pie shell
2 Tbsps. melted margarine or butter, cooled
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
pinch salt
1 1/2 cups dark Karo syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans (can use halves or pieces)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare the pie crust. Place the pecans in the pie shell. In a mixing bowl blend together the sugar, eggs, and salt. Add the corn syrup and vanilla. Combine thoroughly and then pour over the pecans. Place the pie in the oven and then immediately reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees. Bake for 60-70 mins. It will still be somewhat soft and sloshy in the center but will firm up while it cools.

If the crust appears to be getting too brown before the pie is done you can cut the center out of a piece of foil to cover the edges of the pie.

Happy baking!
