LINDA'S PERFECT PECAN PIE
Homemade Pie Crust
If you're too busy or just lazy (like myself;-)) you can sub a store bought crust.
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1/4 c shortening & 1/4 c butter
4-5 T cold water
Mix flour & salt with butter and shortening. Mix will not be smooth but "pebbled". Mix with water and knead. Roll out and press into pie pan.
Pre-bake 10 minutes at 375 degrees and cool.
The Yummy Filling
3 large eggs, beaten
1 t vanilla
3/4 c sugar
1/3 c melted butter
2 T real/pure maple syrup of choice-good quality
1 c light corn syrup
1 1/2 c chopped pecans (can toast if preferred)
Dash of cinnamon
Mix all of the above together well and fill pre-baked or store bought pie crust.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
Top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy! Serve hot or cold-amazing either way.
