Pecan Pie


This is another recipe I’ve had for a long time. I found it in a cookbook when I was in high school . . . called “Denny’s Pecan Pie.” So, Denny, whoever you are, wherever you are, thank you! I love you. Will you marry me? This pie is so good!! Whether you eat it warm or cold, it hits the spot.


single pie crust (unbaked)

1/3 cup butter, melted

3 eggs

1 cup lightly packed brown sugar

1/2 t salt

1 t vanilla

1 c light corn syrup

1 1/3 c pecan halves and pieces


Put crust in 9″ pie pan. Flute edges. Preheat oven to 375. In medium bowl combine butter, eggs, brown sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Stir in corn syrup until blended, making as little foam as possible. Fold in pecans. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Arrange pecan halves, rounded side up. Bake 40-45 minutes until filling is set. Cool slightly. Serve warm or cold with vanilla ice cream. Refrigerate cooled pie.

    This is without a doubt the best pie in the entire universe. If aliens ever invade earth, they will do it just to get their hands on this pie.
