Shyla's Pecan Pie

As a class project we made a graph comparing four different pecan pie recipes. We charted all of the ingredients and created our own pie recipe using the ingredients we thought would make the best pecan pie. Two different pies were baked, one using a compared recipe and one using our created recipe. We passed out samples to the teachers and Shyla's Pecan Pie won with everyone! 17 pies were ordered by teachers for them to take to their own Thanksgiving dinners.


Ingredients:

9 inch deep dish pie crust
3 eggs
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
½ cup dark corn syrup
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans

Materials:

Spatula
Cooling Rack
Hand Mixer
Mixing Bowl
Measuring cups
Measuring spoons
Glass measuring cup
Aluminum Foil

Steps:

1. Melt the butter in the microwave in the class measuring cup.

2. Mix eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter and vanilla in mixing bowl using hand mixer until well blended.

3. Sprinkle pecans on top of the pie filling.

4. Pour the pecan pie filling into the shell.

5. Place foil around edge of crust.

6. Bake for 20 minutes at 350F degrees (180C); in convection oven. Remove foil, and continue to bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

***6. Bake at 350F (180C); 50 - 60 minutes in preheated conventional oven. Removing foil halfway through cooking.

This pecan pie reminds me of the one my Grandmother used to make every year! That's why I had to buy an extra one! I served it to everyone who came for Thanksgiving and they all thought it was delicious! It was a big hit! Thanks for the great recipe and pie!

Shyla,
I sure wish I would have been here to order a pie from you. I took Mrs. Gossett's pie to her. It really looked yummy, I was tempted to taste it.
You did a real fine job.
