Pecan Pie

I was digging around my cupboard this afternoon and discovered I still have a bag of pecans from Christmas in there!  Being that Pecan is probably my husbands most favorite pie I thought I would go ahead and make one.  He is partial to the the one I make with chocolate (posted 09/19/08), but I don't have a single bit of chocolate around here,  so I made this one instead.  I Wonder if he will go for this one...

Pecan Pie - with a tad of Brandy because that's what I have, but Jim Beam would be nice too : )

1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup broken pecans
3 eggs slightly beaten
1-2 teaspoons Brandy

Melt butter in a small saucepan add sugar and corn syrup.  Cook until the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat.  Whisk in eggs, brandy and stir in pecans.  Pour into unbaked pie shell.

Bake at 350 F. for 50-60 minutes or until set
