Just how Grandma used to make it! This pecan pie is simply fantastic.
1/2 Stick Butter
1 C. Granulated Sugar
3/4 C. Corn Syrup (light)
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1/4 Tsp. Salt
2 C. Chopped or Whole Pecans
1 Unbaked 9-Inch Pie Shell
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Allow the butter to soften considerably.
Beat together everything except for the pie shell (obviously) and pecans. It's OK if there are small clumps of butter.
Place the pie shell in a 9-inch pie dish. Pour in the mix. Spread the pecans evenly over the top.
Bake the pie for 45 minutes. Allow the pie to cool almost completely before serving. If you can't wait that long, it will taste even better when warm but the slices will fall apart when you try and cut them, so don't plan on presenting the pie to anyone!
