Ultimate pecan pie

This is a recipe that I have had in my collection for a long time. It is one that I gathered from my Grandmother before she passed on. It was a prize winning recipe that she found. It is different from many other recipes I have seen. The butter is creamed into the mix making it more like a batter which is very unusual. The pecans are also put on the top and not mixed in or placed in the bottom. Whatever the reason for it all, the results are delightful. It is a keeper


Ultimate Pecan pie

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
4 Tablespoons soft margarine (I substituted butter here)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 beaten eggs
Beat ingredients together until light and fluffy
pour ingredients into a 9 inch pie shell that has been  partially baked for about 10 minutes
top with 1 1/2 cups large pecan peices

Bake in a 425 oven for 30-40 minutes.  A knife inserted near the center will come out clean. Cool completly before serving.
