Pecan Pie

This recipes comes from, just altered slightly. I love this recipe because it uses a small amount of dark corn syrup, which gives it a fantastic flavor. Pecan pies with only light corn syrup are really sweet and pecan pies with only dark corn syrup, I think, are just too deep in flavor. Both ways are good, but this combination is just perfect to me.

Here's what you'll need:

3 eggs, beaten
3/4 C. light corn syrup
2 T. dark corn syrup
3/4 C. light brown sugar
3 T. butter, melted
1 t. vanilla
A pinch of salt
1 1/2 - 2 T. flour
1 C. pecan gems
1/2 C. chocolate chips (opt.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl or a stand mixer, beat eggs, then add light and dark corn syrups, brown sugar, butter, salt, vanilla, and flour. Spread pecan gems over bottom of a prepared pie crust. If you want a chocolate pecan pie, then sprinkle chocolate chips over pecan gems. Pour syrup mixture over top. Bake for 50-55 minutes.
How easy is that?! Try it for your Thanksgiving celebration. I think you'll be glad that you did!!
