Pecan Pie

3 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
Dash sea salt
1 cup dark corn syrup
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 ½ cup pecans

Beat eggs with a mixer or fork.  Add sugar, salt corn syrup and butter.  Stir in the pecans.  Pour mixture into a 9 inch pie crust.  Bake in a 350o oven for 50 minutes.  Some recipes will have you cover the pie crust for half the time to reduce the heat on the crust.  I’ve never really had an issue with this.

Substitution Alert:  For a richer pie, substitute macadamia nuts for pecans and light corn syrup for dark.  It’s a richer taste and adds a little island flavor to this southern specialty.  Or, you can go half and half with the syrup and the nuts.
