Butterscotch Pecan Pie

Monday was my brother Daniel's 25th birthday. We helped him celebrate by hosting a birthday dinner (or supper as it's known in my family). My brother had no opinion on what we should serve - the only thing he wanted was a birthday pie. I made a butterscotch pecan pie which I originally found at Bakerella (love that website!). The pie was soooo easy to make and everyone thought it was delicious. (Although I personally prefer fruit pies, this was yummy!)
Here's a picture of Caroline wishing Uncle Dan a "Happy Day!" Too cute!

Butterscotch Pecan Perfection Pie

1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell*
1 2/3 cups (11-oz. pkg.)
NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Butterscotch Flavored Morsels
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups pecan halves, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups whipped cream (optional)

Directions:PREHEAT oven to 350º F. MELT morsels in medium, uncovered microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. ADD corn syrup, eggs, flour and salt to melted morsels. Beat on medium until smooth. Stir in pecans. Pour pecan mixture into pie shell. BAKE for 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out with little bits of filling attached. If browning too quickly, cover with foil. Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Refrigerate 1 hour or until serving time.
