alabama pecan pie

thanksgiving is upon us!

we have two invitations to dinner tomorrow. the first one is at the mccarthy's in the afternoon and she asked us to bring the wine and desserts. her husband wanted pecan pie and i love pecan pies but have never made one. so here's my first attempt at baking a pecan pie. the recipe is from her husband's aunt.

1 cup white Karo corn syrup
1 tbsp butter
1/8 tsp salt
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Method: Mix all the ingredients together and combine well with beater. Pour filling in an uncooked pie shell and bake slowly - 1 hour at 300 degrees.

looks good and fingers crossed - it tastes good tomorrow.
