Old-Fashion Pecan Pie

Servings: 8
Serve this scrumptious pecan pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or top with homemade whipped cream.

1 (9-inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust
3 large eggs
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 cup Light Karo Syrup* (see note below)
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup pecans, chopped or halves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F/180 degrees C.

Beat eggs and salt together. Mix in flour, and sugar. Gradually add syrup. Beat well. Add melted butter and pecans. Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake 45 minutes to an hour. Pie is done when top cracks. If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream.

Syrup choice can vary by your personal tastes. Using a thick clear syrup gives you a mild sweet pie. Using a more traditional darker syrup will add more distinct maple flavor and a syrup in between even another distinct variety. The choice is yours so experiment to see which one you like the best. For best results use only thick syrup. Karo is a brand name for corn syrup.

Makes 8 servings.
