Very Easy Pecan Pie!! #recipe

Every single year I am asked by my friends, family & loved ones to make a Pecan Pie. I cheated and found this on the Kraft Foods Website! I guess a lot of my friends & family have issues with making pecan pies. I find this one very easy (which is good because I end up doing anywhere from 6 to 9 pies when I make them!)

prep:15 min     total:1 hr 10 min
8 servings

What you need 

1cup maple-flavored or pancake syrup
1/2cup sugar
1/4cup butter or margarine
1-1/2cups PLANTERS Pecan Halves * I always use the ones from my grandparents Pecan trees! A lot cheaper, but it takes forever to crack all the shells)
1 frozen deep-dish pie crust (9-inch), thawed
3 eggs
1tsp. vanilla

Make it

BRING syrup, sugar and butter to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat; simmer on 

medium-low heat 5 min., stirring occasionally. Cool slightly.

HEAT oven to 375°F. Place nuts in pie crust. Whisk eggs and vanilla in medium bowl until 

blended. Gradually stir in syrup mixture; pour over nuts in crust. ( sometimes I don't add all of the filling that was made, because Pecan pies are very sweet. Some people want more pecan then filling and others find they want more filling then pecans. Mix it up to your tastes)

BAKE 35 to 40 min. or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.

Its easier if you already go ahead and preheat the oven to 375, before mixing the syrup, sugar and butter. That way you do not burn the syrup, which by the way can happen. :p)
