So, recently I was in the Dallas airport and saw this tiny little cookbook called Cordon Bubba [compiled by Barry Shlachter]. Since I was on my way to see John, I couldn't resist getting it for him. Turns out it has a recipe for the best pecan pie you'll ever eat! (I always thought my mother's pecan pie was the best - but now I know better. Sorry, Mom.)

1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/8 tsp salt
4 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1 tsp vanilla
1 - 9" uncooked pie shell

Allow butter to cool, then combine all ingredients, mixing well. Pour into a 9" uncooked pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Having just eaten this pie when mom made it - I have to agree - best pecan pie ever! Super delicious!

I know this comment is totally old but I made this for Thanksgiving and it got rave reviews! Thanks for the share. Of course I credited you with the find and share! Thanks again!
