Mama Winnie's Pecan Pie


Mama Winnie’s Pecan Pie

Ingredients
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup Karo corn syrup
¾ cup sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups chopped pecans
1 unbaked pie crust

Directions
In a large bowl, mix eggs, syrup, sugar, butter, vanilla and flour until well blended. Stir in chopped pecans. Pour into pie crust.

Bake at 350˚F for 50 to 55 minutes.

Enjoy the pecan pie perfection!

All of the pies were made by scratch by Mama Winnie. 
Notice the pies on the left are stacked on top of each other.

*My grandma believed that it was just as easy to make two pies as one (as you can see evidence of in the photo above).  She would double the recipe to make two pecan pies.  Since the premade pie crusts usually come with two in a package I double the recipe.  Yes, I do use premade pie crusts, but I use a fork to crimp the pie crust edges just like Mama Winnie.  Very soon I'll be sharing my grandma's recipe for Chocolate Cream Pie and Coconut Cream Pie.  My great-grandmother and grandma also used to make a Pineapple Coconut Pie that I'll share with you, too. 
All so delicious!
