I have been a search for the perfect pecan pie recipe. This may sound silly, but I remember when I was little, the local chicken restaurant would have individual pecan pie slices for sale in small plastic containers. I thought these were just great at the time, and I have been a big pecan pie fan ever since. I now know that just about anything sold in individual plastic containers like that is not as good as homemade so I have been looking for the right recipe.
I found what I think is the best pie over at Southern Plate. The only change I made was to the cooking time and that is because my oven cooks a little slow. I had to extend the time by about 10 minutes, which I do with a lot of recipes.
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup white corn syrup
3/4 stick butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 unbaked deep dish pie shell
In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Blend in the sugar.
Stir in the remaining ingredients, mixing well. Pour into the pie shell and place in a COLD oven. Turn oven to 300 degrees and bake for 60-70 minutes. Enjoy!
