Ingredients:  
Note that Mammie also made this recipe and Sarah now makes for Thanksgiving

Unbaked pie shell
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
3 eggs slightly beaten
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions:
Directions:
Make an unbaked pie shell (or do as I do and use a frozen pie crust). Cream butter. Add sugar gradually and cream together until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients and blend well.

Pour into pastry shell. Bake on lower shelf in a moderate oven (375) I would use 350, for 40 to 45 minutes.



Baking on higher heat in electric oven would probably burn crust before pie sets well.

Family Thanksgiving meals always included 2 pecan pies and sometimes 6 pumpkin pies when we gathered at Jane's. Sarah has taken over the duties of the pies for Thanksgiving now and bakes delicious pecan and pumpkin pies and always an apple for Austin.

Personal Notes:
Brenda's note: Every Thanksgiving, it was a tradition for our family to gather at Jane and Earl's house. I believe Kenny and Jean had the first gathering, but Jane had it after that - until her death in 1981. That was the day we looked most forward to. The entire family would go for lunch and stay until after supper time. In the earlier days, some of the men would hunt when Jane and Earl lived at Big Clifty (Kerry was born here in 1960). The railroad was close to their back yard. I can remember gatherings on Hawkins Drive in E'town where they lived a short time (Kerry was very young). They moved to College Street for a few years. I babysat Kerry and Sheila there. It was a lovely home. Then, they moved to Hwy 62 where Cole and Tuttle business was nextdoor to them. The last home where we gathered was in Stephensburg where Earl still owns (in 2018). Here they put up tobacco on Thanksgiving some years. Our boys loved Kerry so much and enjoyed his G I Joe dolls and accessories, basketball and drums. Sarah was small those last years. When Jane died, our family meals ceased. Jane was a beautiful soul, loved by all. She had cancer that took her life too young. Sheila was pregnant with their first grandchild (Maggie) but Jane died before she was born.
