I love to make pies! I love rolling out the dough, filling it up with something delicious and the smell that comes from the oven. I never made a pecan pie before so when I saw it in the newest cookbook Hometown Christmas by Gooseberry Patch, I couldn't wait to make it. This recipe is so simple, it only takes a few ingredients, and you can whip it up in no time at all. You'll find all kinds of wonderful recipes in Hometown Christmas. It features Breakfast with Santa, Sledding Party Warmers, Old-Fashioned Christmas Dinner, Open House...You're Invited, Tree-Trimming Treats, Slow-Cooker Comfort Foods, and Coming Home for Christmas. Not only will you find lots of festive recipes there's also merry making tips and warm holiday memories.

Ingredients are as follows:
1 (9 inch) pie crust
1/2 C pecan halves (I crushed mine up because of the kids)
1 C dark corn syrup
1 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees; grease a 9" pie pan.
Place unbaked crust into pie plate and arrange pecans in crust; set aside.
In a bowl, beat eggs well.
Mix in the corn syrup, sugar, vanilla and salt.
Pour mixture over pecans in crust.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce temperature to 325 degrees. Bake an additional 30 minutes or until center of the pie is set (mine took about 55 minutes).
Cool completely then slice, serve and enjoy!
Gooseberry Patch has graciously offered a cookbook to one of you and I bought this adorable gingerbread cupcake kit and gingerbread bakery bags too.
