This Southern Pecan Pie recipe is from my personal collection. I have baked dozens and dozens of this pie. It began as my mom's recipe, but I've altered it over the years to get it just how I like it. We live in Texas Pecan country, so the nuts are plentiful. If you can get fresh pecans, they really do taste much better than bagged ones.
Stir in corn syrup and melted butter. Mix well. Add chopped pecans and pour into pie crust inside the pie pan.
Crimp edges of pie crust as you see fit.
Cover the edge of pie crust with foil or a metal pie ring to prevent the crust from burning. I've owned my pie rings for 8+ years and love them.
**Hint**I have made this recipe using pecan halves and chopped pecans, and amongst our family, we all agree that the chopped pecans taste better and make it easier to cut the pie into slices.
