Pecan Pie

Pecans are native to America, with most of them grown in the South and South-west.  Pecan pie is a genuine southern speciality.


3 eggs, lightly beaten
100g sugar
322g dark corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g pecan halves
9" pie case, uncooked
60g butter, melted

Pre-heat the oven to 180C
Stir eggs, sugar, melted butter, syrup and vanilla in a large bowl until well blended.

Arrange pecan halves over the bottom of the pastry case and carefully pour the mixture over.

Bake for 50-55 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack and reheat when ready to serve.

Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream or chilled double cream.
