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
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!
