Southern Pecan Pie

Pecan pie is our family favorite. We usually reserve pecan pie for the holidays. This is a super easy recipe. I usually make this pie a week or so before the BIG holiday dinner. I freeze it and then pop it in the oven before setting the table for Christmas dinner.
1 c. light corn syrup
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 c. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup of pecan halves
1 pie shell, unbaked, 9-inch

1.) In a bowl, combine corn syrup, brown sugar, salt, butter, and vanilla; mix well.
2.) Add slightly beaten eggs and blend well; stir in pecans.
3.) Pour into the unbaked pie shell.
4.) Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until set.
5.) Cool pecan pie and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
