This is honestly the best pecan pie that you will ever eat...ever! It is so delicious, whenever I make it people always ask for the recipe! It is perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I got the recipe from my mom who got it from Better Homes and Garden.
1 pie crust 3 eggs, slightly beaten 1 cup light-colored corn syrup 2/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 14 cups pecan halves
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare and roll out pastry for the 9 inch pie plate.
2. For filling, in a medium bowl combine eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, and vanilla; mix well. Stir in pecan halves.
3. Place the pastry lined pie plate on the oven rack. Carefully pour the filling into the pastry shell. To prevent over browning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake about 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes more or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack. Cover and chill within 2 hours.
