Pecan pie

Sure Andy,
Here it is
Southern Pecan Pie
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 1 cup corn syrup (Karo brand is common in the south)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla flavoring or extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups pecans
  • 1 9-inch pie shell (deep dish is a good idea)
Cream the sugar and butter well in a medium sized mixing bowl.
Add syrup, salt, and vanilla. Mix again.
Add eggs one at a time and mix after each.
Stir in pecans (or you can place them on top if you want).
Pour mixture into pie crust. Do not bake the pie crust first for this one.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 45 minutes.

Hi Amy,

The pecan pie you've made is how its suppose to turns out, whether its homemade or store bought. I tried 1 recipe that creams the butter and sugar together then adding the rest of the ingredients. The results to the filling was pretty similar with the exception that the top had a crunchy meringue-like sweet nutty crust after baking. Another one was to boil the sugar, syrup and butter together before mixing in the rest of the ingredients and the result were the same as the one off the Karo syrup bottle/the one you made. I guess the pecans are lighter in weight than the egg mixture and therefore rises to the top. If you want more nuts incorporated, then I would definitely rough chop enough pecans to loosely fill the pie pan then pour in the liquid mixture and then top it off with the fancy halves. Another thought which would be in my mind a pain to do is to probably coat the pecans in butter then flour for weight or just coat them in flour. Understand I haven't tried it either of these methods because my family just likes the pecan pie the way it is.
