No, I didn’t need it, but boy did I yearn for some pecan pie. Because of this crazing craving, I went searching to see if I had the ingredients. Happily, I did–well just about. I just had to convince myself that making a pie for myself was a good thing.
Here’s my easy Pecan Pie Recipe
Ingredients: 1 Cup light corn syrup (I was a little short, but it didn’t seem to matter); 3 eggs; 1 Cup sugar; 2 Tbs butter-melted; 1 tsp vanilla; 1 1/2 Cups pecans–rough chopped; and 1 pie crust (mine was frozen)
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla together. When well-blended add pecans and pour into crust.
Bake 60 minutes. Cool for 2 hours. Eat!
I should have put foil around the crust edge, but I forgot. My pie came out a bit dark, but boy oh boy it sure tasted great.
I’m taking small slices for myself, so this will last a few days. I’d rather share it with family, but we are all sheltering at our homes. I guess I’ll have to sacrifice and eat it all myself.
