Betty's Best Pecan Pie

Betty Warren


I know everyone out there has a pecan pie recipe, but this is the best I have ever baked and I have tried many. Most recipes call for 1/2 tsp vanilla, this one calls for 1 1/2 tsp.

How to Make Betty's Best Pecan Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt stick of butter in glass bowl. Blend sugar, syrup, salt and vanilla and add to butter. Blend well.
  2. Add beaten eggs slowly to sugar mixture stirring gently as you pour them in. Fold in pecans and pour into unbaked pie shell.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and then bake at 325 degrees for additional 30 to 40 minutes until middle is set.(if the middle is a little shakey after baking time, pie will firm as it cools).

    You may want to put a pie shield over edges of crust after it browns to keep it from getting to brown. You can buy them at Wal Mart or most department stores.(Very handy to have)
