The Best Pecan Pie Ever – Easy Thanksgiving Recipes

Originally posted on October 27, 2008

I love pecan pie. I’m a real pecan pie aficionado, and I’ve never eaten one as tasty as this.

Many Novembers ago, I gained about fifteen pounds perfecting my very own pecan pie recipe. My gain is your gain because I’m going to share it with you, in the spirit of the coming holidays. Enjoy!

The Best Pecan Pie Ever - Easy Thanksgiving Recipes
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Press the pie crust into the pie plate and proof. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until the crust is just barely golden.
  3. Meanwhile, in a 2 quart bowl, mix together eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, and remaining pecans.
  4. When crust comes out of the oven, pour syrup and pecan mixture into it.
  5. Bake pie in preheated oven about 1 hour, or until firm. Let cool at least 1 hour before serving (if you don't, it will be very runny when you try to cut it).
Recipe Notes

Don't try to lighten this recipe by using Splenda. It doesn't work. Trust me. I know.

  1. Yum! I love pecan pie. I have a friend that used to have me make one just for her every holiday, but unfortunately she moved. 🙁

  2. I love the flavor of pecan pie, but I can only eat a tiny piece at a time. Perhaps because there are always other “must try” desserts on the table, too!
