Quick Pecan Pie

 

Dessert

Quick Pecan Pie

2 eggs

2/3 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup light corn syrup

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup pecans

1 8- or 9-inch pie shell

12 pecan halves for garnish

Heat oven to 450 degrees.

Place eggs, sugar, salt, syrup, butter and vanilla in a blender and process until mixed. Add the pecans and pulse a couple of times — just long enough to chop the pecans; you don't want them to get too small.

Pour filling into pie shell. Arrange pecan halves on top. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 350 degrees and bake 30 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
