Southern Pecan Pie ~Simply delicious

Yummy pecan pie

In our house it is simply not Thanksgiving without a pecan pie or two. Everyone has their favorite recipe I’m sure, but this one has stood the test of time. It is my mother-in law’s recipe and I assure you it is delicious! Everyone wants to take a piece or two home with them when she makes one so I usually make one at thanksgiving because it is my hubby’s favorite. Here is the recipe, I hope you enjoy it.

4 farm fresh eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup dark Karo syrup
3 Tbsp melted real butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1&1/2 – 2 cups chopped pecans

Beat eggs, by hand, in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Pour filling into a deep pie shell.
Bake 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Reduce heat too 300 degrees and bake for about 50 minutes.
A knife inserted halfway between crust and middle should come out somewhat clean, not gooey.

* helpful hint* cover the edges of the crust with foil if you don’t have one of those helpful little pie crust covers so the crust doesn’t over cook.

  2. Thank you, very timely! We were given a bagful of pecans (in the shell) and hubby asked for a pecan pie for Thanksgiving. I’ll give this recipe a try. Will share on Pinterest and Facebook too. Visiting from the Good Neighbor blog hop.

  4. This is my all time favorite pie, exactly like this. It doesn’t need anything more or less. Thank you for sharing it with us on the Good Neighbor Hop.
