This is Nana’s old family recipe…
Southern Pecan Pie
1 pie crust (make your own or don’t)
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup corn syrup (light)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
3 whole eggs beaten
1/3 cup melted butter (salted)
1 generous cup of chopped pecans (from Arkansas if possible…:))
1. Mix everything together except the pecans.
2. Pour pecans into the uncooked pie crust.
3. Pour syrup mixture (#1) over pecans. Watch the pecans mysteriously float to the top.
4. Cover lightly with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove foil and continue baking for approximately 20-30 minutes depending on your oven.
