Easy Pecan Pie

Pin this Post on Pinterest Share on Facebook

Pecan pie is, without a doubt, one of my favorite Southern desserts.  Perfect for the holidays, or any day.  Here’s a simple recipe using a store bought crust.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked frozen pie shell (thawed)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, gently beat eggs. Stir in sugar and flour, then the syrup, butter and vanilla.
  3. Fold in pecans. Pour mixture into pie shell.
  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes; or until set.

Variations

Some prefer to toast their pecans first for a more rich, nutty flavor.

If you find that your crust becomes too dark, you can use a pie shield or sculpted aluminum foil to cover the exposed pie crust edges and prevent them from burning.

    I saw this recipe on pinterest and decided to give it a try. Although I am only 19 years old I have literally been trying for years to find the perfect pecan pie recipe and y’all I finally have! This pie is absolutely perfect! I made two for thanksgiving tomorrow :) Thank you so much for the recipe!

    • Emmaleigh, I’m just thrilled! I love to hear about young folks who are passionate about food. I’m so glad it was one of my recipes that ended your quest for the perfect recipe!

  4. I am 69 yo….was raised by an aunt who was known as our area’s pecan pie lady. She made the pies for everyone from the postman to the fire station men to all church suppers. I inherited her recipe box but the pecan pie recipe wasn’t in it. This recipe and photo looks almost like her pies. Her filling was somewhat lighter looking though. I’ll be trying this and see what comes of it. If it is her recipe, I’ll be so very fortunate. Thank you for this. BTW, do you think you could give us a good ole southern chess pie recipe? I’m missing that one too. Thanks……………Bn

  5. Hi!
    I started following you after your today show appearance. Do you ever add chocolatte chips?
