Pecan Pie

Authentic southern pecan pie – sticky, gooey, and rich.

This is the best pecan pie I’ve ever had. My boyfriends aunt & uncle owns a catering business and boy, do they know how to make awesome food. I definitely look forward to holiday events solely for the feast they always bring along with them.

One of my Christmas presents last year was this recipe they e-mailed me. My boyfriend and I always rave about how delicious their pecan pie is. They definitely caught on by making it a mandatory dish at the dessert table.

Pecan Pie:
Recipe from Chef Bill
Ingredients: (makes one pie)
1/3 cup cold butter
1 cup light Karo
1 cup light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 heaping cup roughly chopped pecans
1 regular uncooked pie shell
Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a stand in mixer or you can use a beater. Stir in the pecans and pour the mixture into the pie crust. Carefully place the crust on a baking sheet lined with tin foil. Bake on 325-350 for 45-50 minutes (the middle of pie will rise and be golden brown when done. It might take a couple tries with your oven to find the balance between doneness and proper color)* edited: I found the perfect doneness for mine is for 48 minutes @ 350 degrees. Let set overnight or until completely cooled. Keep refrigerated.

The best.

  1. I love pecans but I don’t think I’ve ever had pecan pie..that is definitely a crime!

  2. I’ve never had pecan pie either but I really want to give it a try now that I’ve seen this! Send me a slice? ;-)

  3. Really? You definitely need to try it! It’s like the best American food ever invented. I would but I made 2 of these pies and they literally have been devored by my friends and family within the 48 hours that I made them haha.

  4. gahhh! pecan pie is SO good and these pictures make me want a slice!

  5. Yay! I love pecan pie, and this recipe looks wonderful. I have only made it a couple of times, spiked with bourbon and dotted with chocolate chips. What can I say? I’m a creature of excess. (I’m also a creature in need of pie…)

  6. This looks amazing and so rustic. I love the new twist on pecan pie. Thanks for posting.

  9. Oh gosh Pecan Pie. Heaven. Last thanksgiving I ate half of the pie in one sitting. It was sickening but I just couldn’t stop. At least that’s only a once a year kinda thing!
