Abby's Pecan Pie
1 9-inch unbaked pie crust
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspon salt
1 teaspon vanilla
1 heaping cup pecan halves (I prefer pecan pieces)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt and vanilla. Mix well.
Pour filling into unbaked pie crust; sprinkle with pecan halves. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until center is set. (Toothpick inserted in center will come out clean when pie is done.) Cool.
If crust or pie appears to be getting too brown, cover with foil for the remaining baking time. Top with whipped cream if desired.
-- This is from an old "Dear Abby" column but Momma has made it so many times, it's really now her recipe.
