Classic Pecan Pie

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Bake Time: 60 to 70 minutes

Cool Time: 2 hours

Yield: 8 servings

1 cup Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

1½ cups (6 ounces) pecans

1 (9-inch) unbaked or frozen* deep-dish pie crust

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon. Stir in pecans. Pour filling into pie crust.

Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes. Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.

*To use prepared frozen pie crust: Place cookie sheet in oven and preheat oven as directed. Pour filling into frozen crust and bake on preheated cookie sheet.

Recipe Note: Pie is done when center reaches 200° F. Tap center surface of pie lightly—it should spring back when done. For easy cleanup, spray pie pan with cooking spray before placing pie crust in pan. If pie crust is overbrowning, cover edges with foil.

Creamy Carmelized Onion and Bacon Dip

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 to 30 minutes

Cool Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 4 cups

8 ounces bacon (6 to 8 strips)

2 tablespoons butter

1 medium-sweet onion, chopped

1 medium red onion, chopped

2 tablespoons Karo® Dark Corn Syrup

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 cup sour cream

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

¼ cup diced green onions

Crumbled bacon and green onions (optional garnish)

Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon to paper towel−lined plate to cool; crumble. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon grease from skillet.

Add butter to skillet with bacon grease. Stir in sweet and red onions and cook over medium heat until soft (about 5 minutes), stirring frequently. Stir in 1 tablespoon corn syrup. Continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes until onions are caramelized. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon corn syrup, vinegar and crumbled bacon. Mix well and remove from heat. If needed, drain any excess grease. Let mixture cool for 20 minutes.

Beat sour cream and cream cheese in a bowl with hand mixer until well blended and creamy. Stir in green onions. Stir in caramelized onion and bacon mixture and mix well.

Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve. Garnish with additional bacon and green onions, if desired.

Recipe Note: While dark corn syrup is preferred, light corn syrup may be substituted if desired.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
