CLASSIC GEORGIA PECAN PIE
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup sugar
1 cup light or dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups Georgia pecan halves, chopped or halved (personal preference)
1 deep dish unbaked pie shell *
Preheat oven to 350º.
Combine eggs, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and butter. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine, then stir in pecans.
Pour into pie shell.
Bake 40 - 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool before serving.
* If you use a frozen pie shell it will brown quicker than others so you may need to cover edges with foil to prevent from over browning.
Makes about 8 slices
