Pecan Pie. I know this shows as 1/2 of a crust but that's because we're only using crust on the bottom

Recipe Ingredients for Pecan Pie, Southern

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
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups pecans
1/2 Pastry for double-crust pie

Recipe Directions for Pecan Pie, Southern

  1. Cream the sugar and butter well in a medium sized mixing bowl.

  2. Add syrup, salt, and vanilla. Mix again.

  3. Add eggs one at a time and mix after each.

  4. Stir in pecans (or you can place them on top if you want).

  5. Pour mixture into pie crust. Do not bake the pie crust first for this one.

  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 45 minutes.

  7. Tips for Making Pecan Pies

  8. The only real problem I?ve ever seen with pecan pies is them not ?setting? (or firming up). I?m not completely sure why this happens. I think the pies are less likely to firm up if the corn syrup is old and also if the filling is not mixed well. I use fresh syrup and do not double the recipe. If I want two pies, I mix each up separate.

  9. When using pecan pieces, stirring them in works well. They rise up to the top during the cooking. For whole pieces, you can do the same. But, you can get a nice, neat pattern if you place the nuts on by hand after pouring the sugar batter in the pie crust.

  10. Some people like vanilla ice cream on top of pecan pie. That?s not very traditional for southerners though. It?s more likely for folks from other parts of the country to add the ice cream.

  11. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator (if you have any left over). Microwave a slice for 10 seconds or so to take the chill off.
