Texas State Fair Pecan Pie

Every year I get a cookbook from the State Fair.  I began this tradition many moons ago, and I've never been disappointed in the recipes I've tried.  Pecan pie is one of my favorites, and this recipe was DELICIOUS, AND it had a lot fewer ingredients than some of the other yummy pies I've posted about in the past. 
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching it's time to pull out this recipe and prep the oven....
Best Texas Pecan Pie by Janis
Ingredients:  1 stick butter, 1 c. light karo syrup, 1 c. white sugar, 3 large eggs, slightly beaten, 1 t. vanilla, 1/8 t. salt, 1 C. pecans (chopped)
Instructions:  Brown butter in a skillet until golden brown, don't let it burn.  Cool butter. 
Combine Karo, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt; mix until blended. Stir in cooled butter. Place choped pecans in bottom of 9' unbacked pie crust.
Pour mix over pecans.

Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, lower temp to 325 and bake for another 50 minutes. Cool; serve with whipped cream.

I love Pecan Pie too. The best I have found was Bakerella's Brownie Pecan. I use a Mocha Brownie mix and make it up and then pour into 2 pie shells then pour the "normal" pecan pie ingredients on top of that. Oh MY!!! It's amazing...

Sounds wonderful, but where does one find a nine foot unbacked pie crust?
