Pecan Pie

Ever notice that there are a bazillion pecan pie recipes yet they all, mostly, have the same ingredients. Weird.

I always use the same pie crust recipe (that I need to post) but this pecan pie recipe isn't one I often use. It's good, super easy and I will be making it again (next Thanksgiving).
1 uncooked pie shell
4 large eggs
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups pecan halves
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees, with rack set in lowest position.
2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, corn syrup, sugars, butter, vanilla and salt until smooth, mix in pecans. Poor mixture into pie crust. Bake until filling jiggles slightly in the center when gently shaken, 50 to 60 minutes.

Add baking cocoa to the mix and then you're in for a real treat!
