2 Easy Pecan Pie

A very special friend gave me a signed copy of Peggy S. Grose' cookbook, "Love and Lemon Pie" a couple weeks ago and I have been dying to try something from it! After reading the cookbook cover to cover, I decided on Easy Pecan Pie. . . and true to its word. . . it was by far the easiest pie I have ever made. . . AND it was delicious! ;-)
Easy Pecan Pie
1 1/4 cups pecans, broken
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 unbaked, 9 inch frozen deep dish pie crust (I used refrigerated pie crust
Put the pecans into the pie crust and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes while collecting the other ingredients. Place all ingredients except the pecans and the crust in the blender and swirl until all ingredients are well mixed (the butter will not mix entirely so just blend for a minute or two). Pour the mixture into the pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean. (or until the middle does not "move" much) If the crust begins to brown before the middle is done, place a piece of aluminum foil over the pan. Makes 6-8 servings.
Pin It!
