1 cup light corn syrup (or honey or maple syrup, or a mix of both)
2 tbsp butter (or non-dairy substitute), melted
2 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups pecans
Mix all ingredients in greased pie plate. Bake in a preheated 325-degree Fahrenheit oven for 45 minutes.
Cassandra said her mother has been making this pie for years, but the source of the recipe is unknown. The original recipe said you could mix ingredients right in the pie plate, but I mixed all in a bowl and then poured into my greased pie plate.
By the way, gfe reader Aleasha shared that she like to make a chocolate chip version by sprinkling chocolate chips on the bottom of the pie plate before she adds the filling. She added that she prefer using pecan pieces (or walnut pieces) instead of pecan halves or easier slicing and, therefore, prettier slices.
