Here is the best pecan pie I have even tasted in my life and I must share it with you. I came across it one time while I was vacationing in Shanty Creek, Michigan and the pastry chef was nice enough to share it with me. It is very delicious and I try to make it every chance I get. I am sure you will agree with me, it is absolutely delectable and simply out of this world!
- 9-inch unbaked pie crust
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 3 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 heaping cup pecan halves
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt and vanilla; mix well. Pour into unbaked pie crust; sprinkle with pecan halves.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until center is set. (Toothpick inserted in center will come out clean when pie is done.) If the crust or pie appears to be getting too brown, cover with foil for the remaining baking time. Cool.
You can add a dollop of whipped cream on top but even plain is superb!
Tip: If an electric oven is used, it may be necessary to add 15 to 20 minutes to the baking time. (Begin testing the pie with a toothpick after 45 minutes.)
