Great Grandmother’s Pecan Pie

Great Grandmother's Pecan Pie Recipe

How many of you had pecan pie with your Thanksgiving dinner last week? I’m guessing quite a few! The Herb family also had this delicious pecan pie that I baked using my great grandmother’s tried and true recipe.

One of the best things about this pecan pie is how EASY it is! Seriously. You pretty much just mix everything together, pour into an unbaked pie shell, and bake it. Super simple.

I have to tell you, by the time I made this pie I was absolutely craving it because I had been looking forward to it for so long. There wasn’t much pie left over, and I’m seriously considering making another one soon to get my fill! Yum!

Great Grandmother’s Pecan Pie

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Unbaked 9-inch pie crust (I use Pillsbury frozen deep dish pie crusts)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup (light is just fine! I used it for this one)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecans, whole or chopped (my family prefers chopped)

Recipe Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Beat eggs slightly. Mix in the next 5 ingredients, then stir in the nuts. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn the oven temperature down to 350 and continue baking for 30-35 minutes. Filling will be slightly less set in the center than around the edges.
