Pecan is my favorite Thanksgiving pie. This is the recipe my Mom has always used, and I've been making for a few years now. It's actually the Karo syrup recipe. It's very easy and so much better than store bought. I like to use the light syrup because I always have it on hand. If you like more of a molasses flavor then use the dark. I also use chopped pecans instead of halves. I like a little real whipped cream on the top too.
