Nanny's Pecan Pie

One last thing for Thanksgiving Dinner. My grandmothers Pecan Pie. She always made this pie for Thanksgiving with Georgia Pecans from our trees, and our neighbors fresh made butter and cane syrup. This has been a part of my Holidays for 69 years! My grandmother started it, and I have prepared it for 51 years. I am thankful that Ruby Euell Hodges was my grandmother, and that she raised me.
1 C Alga or Karo Dark Syrup
1 C sugar
½ C butter
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 ½ C pecan halves
1 Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust, unbaked
(my grandmother made her own...but i take the easy way out!

Melt butter, add sugar and syrup, and mix well. Beat in eggs, one at a time, mixing well. Add vanilla, mix well. Put pecans in bottom of crust; pour filling over. Bake at 400* for 10 minutes, then at 350* until just set.
I am sharing this recipe with Foodie Friday's. and Tea Party Tuesday.
