rich pecan pie

Nanny\'s pecan pieAnother tradition in our house is pecan pie (being a southern girl and all). There are so many ways to make this pie and they’re all easy. Here’s a “rich” (aka: sugar overload) recipe:

  • 1 cup maple-flavored or pancake syrup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1-1/2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pastry shell
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Dash of salt

Steps:

  • Place syrup, sugar and butter in medium saucepan. Bring to boil on medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Place pecans in pastry shell. Beat eggs with vanilla and salt in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Gradually add cooled syrup mixture, beating until well blended. Pour over pecans in pastry shell.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
