In an effort to get things ready early for our Friendsgiving party tomorrow night, I decided to bake pies and do as much as I could today since there always seems to be last minute errands and grocery trips the day you are hosting a party.
This is my favorite pecan pie recipe that I have adapted from my grandmothers recipe and several others over the last few years. It is super simple, and friends and family seem to (er...) gobble it up! PSA - I don't know if I will ever be able to make pretty crusts, but someday I hope to learn... until then I'll focus on the filling!
- 5 Eggs
- 1 cup Karo syrup
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1 1/2 cups pecans
- 4 tbs. melted butter
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- roll out pie crust and pinch in pie dish (there is a much prettier way to do this)
- preheat oven to 350°
- whisk all ingredients EXCEPT pecans
- pour mixture in pan
- pour pecans in mixture
- bake for 70- 75 minutes (until middle is no longer jiggly and crust is golden brown)
