A Winning Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie
Carol's Favorite Pecan Pie

Carol Day, New England Cooks Co-Host.  

Even though I'm "retired " from my appearances on New England Cooks, I still love the shows and the recipes that are always yummy and interesting to make.  One day as I was making a pecan pie for the holidays, Tony stopped by and begged/requested and smilingly asked me to make one for his future son in law.  I did (of course), and got rave reviews.

Here's the pecan pie recipe I use and have used for many years….

1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/4 cup butter
1 cup pecans
1 cup light corn syrup
Recipe for plain pastry pie shell
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream sugar and butter.

Add syrup and salt, and beat well.

Beat in eggs, one at a time.

Add pecans.

Pour into 9-inch pastry-lined pie pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until knife comes out clean.

FYI....This recipe is from the red and white checked "Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook " from 1956!
