Southern Pecan Pie

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups corn syrup (I use 1/2 dark and 1/2 light)
4 eggs
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecans, coarsely broken
1 unbaked deep dish pie shell
1. In saucepan boil sugar and corn syrup together for 2 to 3 minutes; set aside to cool slightly.
2. In large bowl beat eggs lightly and very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the eggs, stirring constantly.
3. At this point I like to strain the mixture to make sure it’s smooth and lump free.
4. Stir in butter, vanilla, and pecans and pour into crust.
5.Bake in a 350°F oven for about 45 to 60 minutes or until set.
