Grandma's Pecan Pie

Today, I made yummy pecan pies!  Every year, my daughter's school sends each teacher home with a pie for Thanksgiving and this year I made my Grandmother's Pecan Pie.

Here is everything you will need.  I went the easy route and bought a pre made crust.  It was a good thing I did because I got a phone call saying my little man was sick!  Strep throat is visiting our house tonight!  Yuck!

The recipe is pretty much the same on the back of the Karo syrup bottle with just a few tweaks that make it a better pie.

Pre heat oven to 350

1/2 c. Karo light corn syrup
1/2 c.  syrup (I used Aunt Jemima)
3 eggs
1 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. flour
1-1/2 c. chopped pecans
1 unbaked 9 inch deep dish pie crust

Stir the first 7 ing. (you can beat with a mixer)
Mix in pecans with a spoon
Pour into pie crust
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes

Adding the flour and the maple syrup makes all the difference in the world!  For me, a full cup of Karo was just a little too sweet.  This is a perfect blend!  Hope you enjoy it!
