Best Southern Pecan Pie -- Different

Same flavor, but not the ooey-gooeyness. Uses brown sugar instead of karo syrup. I checked Zaar and couldn't find the same recipe. The USA southeast area has used this recipe for years. It is a Blue Ribbon WINNER! I would not go back to the syrup recipe. This makes 2 pies using a regular size pie shell and freezes well if you want to freeze one. Butter is best, but you can use margarine. (It is important to use the cornmeal in this recipe.) I prefer my pecans in broken pieces because the slices will cut better. Easy to make and easy to travel to a potluck. You'll be glad you tried this delightful pie!!
