Grandma's Pecan Pie

See this yummy looking slice of pie? I would like to say I made this pie. I could tell you I did, but that would be a lie. My Grandma Lewis is the world's best cook. I think she has magic fingers. Anything she touches tastes wonderful. She made this scrumptious pecan pie. This is her recipe.

1 cup Karo Light OR Dark Corn Syrup
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1-1/2 cups pecans
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon. Stir in pecans. Pour filling into pie crust. Bake on center rack of oven for 55 to 60 minutes. Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.

Tip- Tap center surface of pie lightly - it should spring back when done.

Oh dang that looks good! Pecan pie is one of my favorites, but I only get to make it for potlucks or parties because my family doesn't like it so I would have to eat the whole thing. And that would be very, very bad!
