Pecan Pie

Southern Pecan Pie

This week I’m sharing a classic Southern recipe.  Pecan Pie is a quintessential dessert for Thanksgiving and Christmas here in the South.  I recently made my very first Pecan Pie.  I’d never made it before because I’m usually more of a chocolate fan, but the pie was requested, so I gave it a whirl.  It was way easier to make than I imagined it would be, and it turned out really great!

Pecan Pie


1 cup Light OR Dark Corn Syrup

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1-1/2 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 (see tips for doneness, below). 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.

Pie is done when center reaches 200°F. Tap center surface of pie lightly - it should spring back when done.


High Altitude Adjustments: Reduce sugar to 2/3 cup and increase butter to 3 tablespoons. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
