Pecan Pie

Oh, how can something so easy to make be so delicious!
Do you love Pecan Pie like I do?
Doesn't matter how you pronounce it, this pie is a favorite.

It takes just about five minutes to stir together and you don't even need the mixer. Pour into a refrigerated pie crust and pop it into the oven. Easy

Classic Pecan Pie
recipe source: label on the Karo Syrup bottle


1 cup Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon 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.

RECIPE TIPS: Pie is done when center reaches 200°F. Tap center surface of pie lightly - it should spring back when done. For easy clean up, spray pie pan with cooking spray before placing pie crust in pan. If pie crust is overbrowning, cover edges with foil.

NUTRITION TIP: To reduce calories, substitute new Karo® Lite Syrup for the Karo® Light or Dark Corn Syrup.

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

VARIATION: coarsely chopped walnuts may be substituted for pecans to make a walnut pie.

Pecan has always been one of my favorite pies. I've never made my own though but then I didn't know it was this easy. This one looks delicious

This is a fall favourite and I often make it with Maple Syrup for a little twist.

You are so right. That is one of the easiest and best pies to make. Only problem I've ever had is to leave it in too long to make sure it is done.

It is 5:00pm. I had a few extra minutes to visit your blog, and now I am sitting here wishing with all my heart for a slice of pecan pie, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a tall mug of coffee. You did it again. You have a way of making every single food, look so delicious and so appetizing. This is one of our very favorites!
