Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie_comp  “My memory goes back to the 1950’s when my great-Aunt Concetta (who was my third and fourth grade teacher, by the way!)  used to make this exact pecan pie recipe often.   It was one of her favorites, as is mine.  
It is one of those old-fashioned,  fool-proof recipes that cannot be improved upon. This classic has had many variations through the years, but I really still enjoy this simple one.  It is delicious and comes out perfectly every time.  Enjoy!”
Servings:  8     Cook Time:   50 minutes
1 pie shell, unbaked
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
8 pecans, to decorate top
1. Preheat oven to 450°.
2. In a large bowl, mix eggs, corn syrup,  pecans, vanilla, and sugar.
3. Pour into pie shell.
4. Decorate top of pie with additional 8 pecans.
5. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes, then reduce oven to 350° and continue baking for 40 more minutes. It will be a little shaky when you take it out. Do not over bake.
6. Cool pie on wire rack.
7. Store pie covered in refrigerator.
