#2697 - Brown Sugar Pecan Pie

(by Aunt Faye [Herman] Minier)

1 unbaked 9" pie crust dough
4 eggs
1 lb. Domino's dark brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup softened butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecan halves

Place pie dough into a greased pie plate--flute the edges of the dough and spray the inside of the pie dough with Pam. In a mixer add eggs--beat and set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat add brown sugar and water--cook/stir until brown sugar dissolves. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring--once boiling, boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat--quickly add hot sugar mixture to egg mixture while stirring. Add butter and vanilla--stir until dissolved. Pour the whole mixture into the pie dough. Arrange the pecan halves all over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until set--test with a tableknife for doneness. Cool completely.
