Classic Pecan Pie

Sandy Young


Our family loves pecan pie. Everyone in the South does, so we're not an exception. I've tried many recipes, but this one, on the Karo Syrup bottle, is delicious. Try it; you'll like it!

How to Make Classic Pecan Pie


  • 1Preheat oven to 350.
  • 2In large bowl, stir eggs, sugar, syrup, butter, and vanilla until well blended. Sometimes I use an electric mixer, and sometimes I stir by hand. Either way is fine.
  • 3Stir in pecans and pour into pie crust.
  • 4Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until a table knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
  • 5For our family, a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of warm pie is a must!
