PIE! PIE! PIE!!!!!!

First up, we have pecan pie.  Before last year, I was not a big fan of pecan pie.  It was a take it or leave it kind of dessert.  If I had to choose between pecan and pumpkin, I was going to eat the pumpkin.  But then I tried this recipe.  And it is AMAZING!!!!!
I got it from Pioneer Woman and she calls it “the pie that will make you cry”  Yes, it is really, really, good!

  • 1 whole Unbaked Pie Crust (I Use “sylvia’s Perfect Pie Crust” Recipe
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Corn Syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1/3 cup Melted Butter (salted)
  • 3 whole Eggs Beaten
  • 1 cup (heaping) Chopped Pecans

Preparation Instructions

First, whip up your pie crust using “Sylvia’s Perfect Pie Crust” found on Tasty Kitchen.
Next, mix sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl.
Pour chopped pecans in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell.
Pour syrup mixture over the top. Cover top and crust lightly/gently with foil. Bake pie at 350º for 30 minutes. Remove foil, then continue baking for 20 minutes, being careful not to burn the crust or pecans.
NOTE: PIE SHOULD NOT BE OVERLY JIGGLY WHEN YOU REMOVE IT FROM THE OVEN. If it shakes a lot, cover with foil and bake for an additional 20 minute or until set. Required baking time seems to vary widely with this recipe. Sometimes it takes 50 minutes; sometimes it takes 75!
Allow to cool for several hours or overnight. Serve in thin slivers

Tomorrow—pumpkin pie
