How to make a pecan pie

Pecan Pie 184 

We had a pecan pie for our Christmas dinner. It was yummy.

 People asked, "What’s in it?"

Here’s a recipe for pecan pie:

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

3 eggs, slightly beaten

1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 ½ cups pecan halves

1 unbaked pastry shell

In a large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt, and vanilla; mix well. Pour into an unbaked pie crust; sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 to 50 minutes or until center is set. Cool and serve with whipped cream.

Try one. Pecan pies are easy to make from scratch.
