Mom's pecan pies

November 6, 2012

Mom placed two of her famous pecan pies on the kitchen table to cool as I was leaving for the airport after a wonderful vacation in Maryland. I was not allowed to touch them, as they were for a church fundraiser the next day. I should have handed her $20 and put one in my suitcase.

Here is the recipe. More information and yummy recipes from Mom can be found here: http://www.livingthecountrylife.com/country-life/food/christmas-with-betsy-moms-pecan-pie/

Mom's Pecan Pie

1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup dark corn syrup
4 tablespoons butter
1-1/4 cup broken pecans

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Cream the butter. Add the sugar and corn syrup. Beat in the eggs. Mix it all well. Add the pecans and vanilla. Pour the mixture into a 9-inch unbaked pastry shell. Bake in a 425-degree oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes.
