Lois Stewart's Pecan Pie

1 unbaked pie shell
3 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup pecans

Combine eggs and sugar and beat well. Mix in melted butter and syrup. Spread pecans in the unbaked pie shell and pour the egg mixture over top. Bake until set, about 40-50 minutes at 375°.

Lois Stewart contributed this recipe to the Jolly Neighbors Extension Club of Rose, Nebraska, for a hand-written cookbook that they made during the early 1960's. I have expanded the directions a little because all the recipes were greatly condensed to fit on one side of a 3x5" recipe card. Mrs. Stewart was my second grade teacher.

Another great Easy Recipe

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
