Favorite Pecan Pie

From Southern Living, this is my favorite pecan pie. The difference comes from the butter, sugar and corn syrup being cooked together before other ingredients are added. I prefer the recipe as stated, but Southern Living says you may also add 3 tablespoons rum with the eggs for a Rum Pecan Pie. Praline liquer is even better. Note the recipe calls for pecan halves, not chopped pecans. It takes about two minutes to arrange the pecans in concentric circles on top of the filling, making a beautiful presentation that will impress your friends and family. I've also used 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans instead of pecan halves.
