1 Frozen pie shell 9 "
1/2 cup light Birch
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
3 eggs slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp of salt
2/3 cup chopped pecans
Bake the pie shell at
400 degrees don't forget to pierce the shell crust with a fork
or the crust may raise. Cook the shell for ten minutes and
remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 275 degrees. In a
bowl add the slightly beaten eggs. Then add all other
ingredients listed above, adding the pecans last and stir well.
Pour into pie shell and bake in a oven at 275 degrees for 60
minutes. Depending on oven or moisture you may have to cook the
pie a few more minutes. The pie is done when the sides are set
and it slightly jiggles in the middle. The pie will rise when it
has been cooked. Cool the pie before slicing into it.
Refrigerating the pie will also help to firm it.
