Loveless Cafe Southern Pecan Pie
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup corn syrup
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 and 1/4 cups pecans
1 10-inch unbaked pie crust
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs slightly to combine yolks and whites.
Add corn syrup and sugars. Melt butter and add to the egg and sugar mixture.
Stir in vanilla and pecans until well blended.
Carefully pour into pie crust, being careful not to overfill.
Bake for 50 minutes or until set. If the edges of the crust begin to brown
too early, cover the edges with aluminum foil. Cool before serving.
Carol Fay Ellison, a Loveless Cafe cook for a quarter of a century, says the
recipe is easy to make and customers often ask how it’s prepared. “It’s been
a secret” up until now, she adds.
