Pecan Pie

I’ve had this pecan pie recipe as long as I can remember, I don’t even know where I got the recipe from, all I know it I love this pie. 

 Usually pecans are kept whole in a pecan pie,

but this recipe calls for them chopped.

Ingredients:

 

3 large eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 dark corn syrup

3 Tablespoons melted butter

1 cup chopped pecans

Dash of salt (pinch)

 

Directions:

 

Combine eggs and sugar and mix well.  Add the rest of ingredients in order listed.  Stir well and pour into an unbaked 9″ pie shell.

Bake at 350 F for 45 to 60 minutes.

* Lightly brush pie shell with egg white before filling, this helps seal the crust and helps prevent pie crust from being soggy
