Elle's Kitchen: Pecan Pie

Happy National Pie Day!

Today is National Pie Day, at least, that's
what I saw on facebook...  But since I like
pie, I'm taking advantage of this holiday
and making a pie.


1 cup light corn syrup
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tabl. butter, melted
1 teas. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups pecans
1 unbaked 9'' deep dish pie crust

Preheat oven to 350F.  
Thoroughly stir together the first 
5 ingredients using a spoon.
Then mix in the pecans.

Pour into pie crust.  Bake on center rack of 
oven for 60 to 70 minutes. 

If pie crust is over-browning, cover edges with foil.

 Cool for 2 hours.  

Store pie in refrigerator (using a pie keeper is
 helpful to keep the pie from picking up any
odors from other foods.)

Pecan Pie is now my favorite pie.  I used to think
Pumpkin Pie was my favorite but now I find I
prefer to eat Pumpkin Bread.  I never made pecan
pie until a few years ago, we never made it in my
house growing up and I thought it would be difficult.
Oh how wrong I was, this is one of the simplest 
pies you can make!
