This is incredibly easy and VERY delicious!
1 1/4 c. southern cane syrup (or dark Karo)
11/2 c. broken or whole pecans
1 c. sugar
4 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Boil sugar and syrup together 2 or 3 minutes. Beat eggs, not too stiff. Pour hot syrup in slowly, stirring. Add butter and vanilla. Put pecans in pie shell, pour syrup over top. Bake in moderate oven (we use 350 degrees) about 45 minutes or until set.
