Perfectly Easy Pecan Pie

This recipe, and many others, is listed in "Sparacino Family Recipes" tab up at the top of my blog.
This is one of my favorite desserts ever.
"Pee-con Pie" 
"Pee-can Pie"
 Either way, it is delicious.
This recipe is simple. 
I found it a few years ago and it has never failed me.
 The Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plus 2 T sugar
  • 4 extra large eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup Karo syrup
  • 1 1/3 cup broken pecans

 Mix the first 4 ingredients together.
Then add the Karo syrup and pecans.
 Pour it into 2 9-inch pie shells. This half went into my Paula Deen pie dish with a homemade pie pastry.  

This half went into a regular store bought pie shell.
This could be one pie if you used a deep dish pie crust.
I, however, like the old saying, "double your pleasure."
I like to wrap foil around the crust to keep it from burning.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes until it begins to brown on top (not too brown though!)
When it comes out of the oven, it will still be a little jiggly.  Don't worry unless it is uncontrollably sloshing.  It will firm up as it cools.
Come to Mama...
Let it cool and then dig in!!!
