Pecan Pie

I am sure I can find a recipe for this online, but I would love to have a recipe from someone on here that has actually made it, and your experiences. I've never made it, so I have no idea of the difficulty level, though Im a good cook, so Im sure I can do it. Thanks!

Amber and Blondie:

When I decided I wanted to make a pecan pie a while back, I searched for recipes and found a ton of them. They provided some good ideas and I combined them to come up with this recipe. It's now a favorite of ours. I like it best with a scoop or two of home made vanilla ice cream!


ANDY M's PECAN PIE

1 Piecrust of your choice
3 Eggs
1 C Dark Corn Syrup
2/3 C Sugar
Pinch Salt
6 Tb Butter, melted
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 C Ground Pecans
1 C Chopped Pecans
1 1/2 C Pecan Halves

Preheat the oven to 350ΒΊ F.

Prepare the piecrust and place it into a 9” deep-dish pie plate. Shape the edge decoratively. Chill.

Mix the eggs, syrup, sugar, salt, butter, vanilla and ground pecans in a bowl.

Spread the chopped pecans on the piecrust.

Pour the liquid mixture on top of the chopped pecans.

Arrange the pecan halves decoratively on top.

Bake for 1 hour or until firm.

Cool before serving.
