DIRECTIONS

  • Sort through pecan halves and fill 1/2 cup with perfect pecan halves, and reserve until ready to put pie in oven.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Chop 1 cup of pecan halves or pecan pieces in food processor on pulse setting, and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, lightly beat eggs.
  • Stir in the corn syrup, sugar, butter, vanilla and salt.
  • Add the chopped pecans to the chess pie mixture and mix well.
  • Pour chess pie mixture into unbaked pie shell.
  • Top filling with perfect pecan halves.
  • Cover pie edges loosely with foil.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.
  • Remove foil. Bake 20 minutes or longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. (That took me an additional 10 minutes.).
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Store in the refrigerator.
