Classic Pecan Pie

Classic Pecan Pie

You cannot mess this pie up – if you can mix, pour, and use an oven then you can do this. Don’t forget to add in the most important ingredient – love… No one will be disappointed!


9-inch unbaked pie crust
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pecan halves (I often use the candied variety and its oh so decadent ­čśë )

Heat Oven to 350 degrees. ┬áPrepare pie crust as directed. In large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt, and vanilla; mix well. Pour filling into prepared pie crust; sprinkle with pecan halves. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until center is set. (toothpick inserted will come out clean when pie is “done”) Cool. Top with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.

Serves 8-10
