Ingredients
  1. 3 Eggs
  2. 1 Cup Sugar
  3. 1/2 Cup Light Corn Syrup
  4. 1/4 Cup Melted Butter
  5. 1-2 Cups Pecans (whole or chopped)
Instructions
  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Beat eggs slightly in a 2 quart bowl.
  3. Stir in sugar, corn syrup and melted butter.
  4. Add pecans (chopped or whole) either one cup for gooey pie and two cups for chewy, nuttier pie.
  5. Stir pecans to coat.
  6. Add filling to prepared raw pie dough.
  7. Bake in center of oven 35-40 minutes or until filling is slightly firm.
Notes
  1. Center of pie may look soft when pie is gently shaken, but it will become firm when cool.
  2. You can add 1 Tablespoon of Whiskey or Bourbon (reduce the butter by same amount) for a kick or line the pie crust with a thin layer of fudge before you cook it if you want a bit of chocolate with your pecans. Serve with homemade whipped cream.
