Southern Pecan Pie

Not just Pecan Pie, but SOUTHERN Pecan Pie. A family recipe I make for my boys every Thanksgiving and Christmas. We all know there's no cooking like grandma's cooking, but I try to use family recipes as much as I can as a reminder of home. No matter what state we live in, thanks to our dear families and deep traditions we at least have some good southern recipes to fill our bellies. We may now call Wyoming home, but Kentucky is forever in our hearts. Happy Thanksgiving!

What you need:
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
Dash of salt
3 eggs well beaten
1 cup pecan halves
1 tsp vanilla
1 unbaked pie shell

Cream together the butter, brown sugar and salt. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour mixture into the pie shell and bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 30 minutes longer.
