Pecan Pie (12-6-11)

Mom's Tips

December 6th, 2011 by Jim Field

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup dark Karo syrup
  • 2/3 cup melted butter

Mix all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Beat until the mixture changes to a caramel color.  In a 10″ unbaked pie shell, put a layer of pecans (2 1/2 cups) and pour pie mixture over the pecans.  Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 45 to 50 minutes – make sure the center still wiggles or it will be too hard.

Now, if you want to change this to a million dollar pie – place in the 10″ unbaked shell:  3/4 cup shredded coconut, 3/4 cup chocolate chips and 3/4 cup pecans.  Pour the mixture over them and bake the same.
