Pecan Pie

My mother was a terrific cook.  Many of my recipes are ones passed down from her.  There are many memories that go along with these recipes.  This is one of my favorites passed on by her.

Pecan Pie

1 unbaked 9" pastry shell
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 t. salt
2T. butter, melted
1 c. dark Karo syrup
1 c. coarsly chopped pecans
1 t. pure vanilla
1/2 t. almond extract
1/2 t. rum extract

Beat eggs slightly, add sugar, butter, salt and flavorings.  Stir in syrup and nuts only until mixed.  Pour into prepared unbaked pastry shell.  Bake 10 minutes at 425 degrees.  Reduce heat to 325-350 degrees for 30 minutes.
