Pecan Pie


* 1/2 recipe (1 disk) Basic Pie Dough, rolled out and fitted into a 9-inch pie plate
* 4 large eggs
* 1 cup light corn syrup
* 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
Southern Pecan Pie * 1/4 cup granulated sugar
* 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1/2 teaspoon salt

How to prepare Pecan Pie:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. with rack set in lowest position.

2. Using kitchen shears or a paring knife, trim dough to a 1-inch overhang. With floured fingers, fold overhang under itself to form a rim; pinch between thumb andforefinger to form a uniform edge around rim of pie plate. Crimp with fingertips.Transfer dough-lined pie plate to refrigerator.

3. Make filling: In a large bowl, whisk eggs, corn syrup, sugars, butter, vanilla, and salt until smooth; mix in pecans. Pour mixture into chilled pie crust; place pie plate on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until filling jiggles slightly in the center when gently shaken, 50 to 60 minutes.

4. Cool pie completely in plate, 5 to 6 hours. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
