Karo Pecan Pie
My Grandmother's Karo Pecan Pie was a must at the holidays and my fathers favorite pie
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
- 3 eggs slightly beaten
- 1 cup red Karo that is her term it means dark
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup chopped pecans or I prefer 1 cup pecan halves
- 1 9 " unbaked pie shell
Mix all ingredients together adding the nuts last.
Pour into a 9" unbaked pie shell.
Place a crust shield around the exposed crust or you can make one with tinfoil. This will keep your crust from burning.
Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 350 degrees until a knife blade inserted comes out clean. (about 30 minutes)
Don't overbake it or it will turn out like hard pecan candy on top.
