One Way to Tall & Handsome’s Heart
By Beverly Hicks Burch
The first year I made this for Tall & Handsome I scored major points. It was like giving him Turkish Delight. He proclaimed, “You make your own pecan pie…from scratch?!” Doesn’t every Southern gal?
Golden Pecan Pie
1 cups pecan pieces
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 (9-inch) deep-dish frozen unbaked pie shell
Preheat oven to 350°.
Beat eggs until light and fluffy. Stir in next six ingredients. Stir in pecans and pour into pie shell.
Bake at 350° for 55 minutes or until set (do not overcook). (Shield edges of crust during the last 20 mins. Of baking to prevent burning.)
