Pecan Pie

This is one of those REALLY easy pie recipes that doesn't even require the use of a mixer. All you need is a bowl and a spoon. Simple, right? Just stir everything up and pour it into your pie shell. How easy is that??

one store bought unbaked pie crust (or half recipe for Easy Pie Crust)
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
2 tbs melted butter
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup pecans

Heat oven to 350. Roll out pie crust. Dust with flour. Brush away excess. Place crust floured side down in a Pyrex pie plate. Flute edges by crimping them with your fingers. Stir all ingredients together and pour into shell.
Bake 50-55 minutes or until set.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or chilled with a dollop of whipped cream.

For a little variation, add 1/2 cup chocolate chips!
