Light Southern Pecan Pie Recipe
I've tried several pecan pie recipes over the years, but just can't find one that beats this one ~ it always turns out great and is a family favorite on the holidays.
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup (like Karo)
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup chopped pecans
1 9" unbaked pie shell (or make one from scratch)
Cream butter with mixer
Add brown sugar to butter gradually and cream ~ mixing well
Blend in syrup and vanilla thoroughly
Add eggs and pecans
Turn into pie shell
Bake at 450 degree oven for 10 minutes so that pie 'sets'
Reduce oven to 350 degrees and bake for another 25 minutes
Insert a knife into center of pie ~ if it comes out clean, it's done!
