This is the recipe Ivy used to make my birthday pie. Pecan pie is my favorite. 



1 and 3/4 white sugar

1/4 c dark corn syrup

1/4 c butter

1 tbsp cold water

2 tsp cornstarch

3 eggs

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 & 1/4 pecans

9” pie shell


Preheat oven to 350. 

In medium saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, butter, water, and cornstarch. Bring to full boil and remove from heat. 

In a large bowl froth eggs, gradually mix in the syrup. Stir in vanilla, pecans, and salt. 

Pour into pie shell and bake 45-50 minutes until it sets. 

Tip: There’s a recipe for pie crust here too!
