Orange Pecan Pie

1 8-inch pie shell; unbaked
3 eggs; slightly beaten
⅓ stick margarine; melted
1½ cups granulated sugar
¾ cups Pecan Valley Pecan Pieces
1 teaspoon orange extract
¼ cup fresh orange juice

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
2. In a large mixing bowl mix beaten eggs, melted margarine, sugar, pecans, orange extract and orange juice. Do not use mixer or beat until frothy. Pour into 8-inch unbaked pie shell.
3. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.
4. Lower oven temperature to 300º.
5. Continue baking for 30 to 45 minutes until crust is brown and pie filling is set. Too rapid cooking causes pecans to scorch and crust to brown before center is cooked.
