Check out the YouTube video!

Southern Style Pecan Pie
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 45 min

Ingredients:
1 9-in pie crust
1 1/2 cup pecans
3 lg eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar (dark is better)
1/2 cup corn syrup (dark is better)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preperation:
Rough chop half the pecans, leave the other half to decorate the top.
Preheat the oven to 350F

Mix the Filler:
Mix the eggs, sugar, syrup and spices together. Stir in the chopped pecans.

Fill the Pie:
Once the pie mix is fully integrated you can spoon it into the pie shell and decorate the top with the full size pecans. The pecans will float to the top of the filler, so don't worry about getting them arranged perfectly.

Bake:
Bake the pie at 350 (180 C) for 45 minutes. Check at the 30 minute mark; if the pecans are turning too brown you can cover the pie with aluminum foil for the rest of the bake time. The pie is done when a knife pressed into the center of the pie comes out clean. That is to say, that the pie filler doesn't stick to the knife or come out goopey.
