Arizona Pecan Pie

You can use Arizona-grown pecans to give this old standard a regional slant.

1 cup light corn syrup

About 1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons each butter or margarine (cut into 1/4-in. cubes), yellow cornmeal, and all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups pecans, whole, chopped, or a mixture

Unbaked 9-inch pie crust

1 small orange

Beat together until blended the corn syrup, 1 cup sugar, eggs, 2 tablespoons of the cream, butter, cornmeal, flour, and vanilla. Stir in the pecans and pour into the pastry shell.

Bake pie on a rack in the lower third of a 350| oven until center is set when pan is gently shaken, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool at least 30 minutes; serve warm or cool.

Whip remaining cream until it holds soft peaks; sweeten to taste with sugar. Pare orange-colored part of reel from orange and cut into very thin slivers. Offer whipped cream and slivered orange peel to top individual wedges of pie. Serves 10.
