I wasn't totally happy with the pie because I cut a corner and used a pre-made crust, but now that I know how easy it is, I will have to make some pie dough and try this out for realzies (it's a word, I swear).
Classic Pecan Pie
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
1/3 teaspoon salt1/3 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup pecan halves
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare crust according to recipe (I prefer Dorie Greenspan's recipe).
2. Beat together all ingredients except the pecans, pour into crust and place pecans on top. Make it pretty!
3. Bake for about 45 minutes with the edges covered to prevent burning.
