Award Winning Pecan Pie Recipe
Over the summer I was hanging out at our family yacht. Who am I kidding, some generous family members loaned it to us for the weekend so we could get a taste of the high life 😉
One of the magazines on board had pie recipes that were submitted to a national pie contest. I took a picture of the recipes with a note to make them in the fall. The winner was this simple Pecan Pie and I made it for Thanksgiving.
Not only was it very easy to make but it was delicious.
- 1 Pie Crust
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 TB melted butter
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 1/4 cup roughly chopped pecans, plus 24 pretty halves for decoration.
1. Heat oven to 350. Whisk corn syrup, sugars, butter, vanilla, salt and eggs in a bowl. Fold in chopped pecans. Pour into pie crust. Arrange pretty halves decoratively aroun the inside edge of the pie crust.
Bake until crust is golden brown and filling set, about 1 hour.
Let cool completely before serving.
