Pecan Pie by LauranBauer


3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup pecans
1 unbaked pie shell


Stir together eggs, corn syrup, sugar, melted butter, salt and vanilla until well blended. Add pecans. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees F. about 1 hour, or until crust is browned and filling is puffy and of a jelly-like consistency (should quiver slightly as you nudge the pan, but it will thicken as it cools). Watch pie carefully during last 15 minutes of cooking--it's easy to overdo the oven cooking. don't forget that it will continue to cook for a few more minutes after removing from the oven as it cools down. Also, the filling will "shrink" back down from its puffy state as it cools, so expect that, too.

BTW, you can put a little aluminum foil strip around the edge to cover the crust and keep it from over-browning.
