Thanksgiving At The McKinneys

This year, Chad and I are hosting Thanksgiving for his family.
We've already planned our menu:

Cornbread Dressing
Mashed Potatoes
Deviled Eggs
Broccoli Casserole
Green Beans
Layered Salad
Cranberry Sauce
Pumpkin Cheesecake
Pecan Pie
Yikes, thats alot of food for two people to fix. Deep breaths...
I did a trial run of the Pecan Pie and it turned out beautifully. Now if it can just do the same on Thanksgiving.

Pioneer Woman's Pecan Pie
1. Start out buying a pre-made pie crust (I don't know about you but I'm not trying to make my own pie crust)
2. 1 cup of white sugar
3. 3 tablespoons of dark brown sugar
4. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
5. 1 cup of light corn syrup
6. 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla
7. 1/3 cup of salted butter, melted
8. 3 whole eggs, beaten
9. 1 heaping cup of chopped Pecans

Mix sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl.
Pour chopped pecans in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell
Pour syrup mixture over the pecans. Cover lightly with with foil.
Bake a 350 for 35 minutes. Remove foil, then continue baking for 20-30 minutes. Make sure the pecans don't burn! The pie will be slightly jiggly but will firm up once it sits and cools for several hours. Enjoy the sweet ooie gooieness with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
