Missy Tippens, here, with my Mom's famous (to our family) pecan pie recipe!
Here are most of the ingredients...
This recipe is one of the first I put in a recipe book that was a wedding gift. Dictated straight from my mom by phone (she in Kentucky, I in Georgia).
1 cup pecans, chopped
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup white corn syrup
1/2 stick melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Other than gathering ingredients and chopping the pecans, this recipe literally takes about 5 minutes.
Here are some beautiful pecans from Camilla Georgia! The Lion's club sells them every year, and I always have some in the freezer. Chop about 1 cup of pecans.
Okay, take your roll up crust (or your homemade one if you choose to make it). Since it's a high sugar pie, they tell you to put a little flour on both sides of the crust.
Mix all other ingredients together and pour over the pecans. This is my mom's trick for making the pecans yummy, sweet and crispy. It coats them with the pie filling, and they float to the top. Like this...
Bake at 350 degrees about 45-50 minutes. Shake a little, and it should be mostly jelled
Remove and let cool a while before eating! Although I do love mine warm.
And now, I can't share the photo of this pie, because it's still in the oven! But I'll show the photo from last year. I hope you'll give my mom's pie a try!
