I've never really cared for pecan pie because it's typically too sweet. This recipe isn't like that at all. It's just wonderful.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: Makes One - 9-inch pie



For Pecan Pie, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Beat eggs will in a large bowl. Add brown sugar, corn syrup, salt, melted butter and vanilla to eggs, mix thoroughly.

Sprinkle chopped pecans in pie shell. Pour egg mixture oven pecans. Arrange pecan halves around edge of filling next to crust for decoration. Bake Pecan Pie on middle rack of oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F and continue baking for 25 to 30 minutes, until set.

Serve Pecan Pie at room temperature.

Notes in the Margin:

* I've made this with light brown sugar and dark corn syrup. The flavor was pretty much the same.

Excellent Pecan Pie Recipe, Member JenNick916

I've made this recipe twice. First for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas Eve dinner. Both times it has turned out phenomenal! I've never made a pecan pie before and I don't really care for it but it is my husband's favorite. Everybody loves this recipe! Thanks for sharing!
