55 Min

Nothing compares to traditional pecan pie. Our easy version will rival anything you can bring home from the bakery. Made with wholesome ingredients and an easy ready-to-bake deep dish pie shell, you'll be a holiday hero.

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 (9-inch) frozen ready-to-bake deep-dish pie shell, thawed

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large saucepan, over medium heat, combine corn syrup, butter, brown sugar, flour, and salt; stir until butter melts.
  2. Remove from heat and add eggs and vanilla; mix well. Stir in pecans and pour into pie shell. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until firm. Serve warm or allow to cool before serving.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this pecan pie last nite . It was verysymple to make and very delish.

Thanks for the tip on the Splenda brown sugar I use the reg Splenda all the time that's the only kind of sugar I use!! But definitely will be making this hubby loves pecan pie!

I have made pecan pie for years. I have never added any flour, but I'm sure that's o.k. One caution is don't use an electric mixer to beat eggs, just whisk well, also I have never preheated anything just mixed altogether and I prefer dark corn syrup. but either works. Some people think it may be a difficutl pie to make, it's one, if not the easiest, by the way I was born in Oklahoma 75 years ago.

I agree with you... why precook when you can mix all ingredients in your mixing bowl and pour into your crust.

I am a southren girl and love Pecan Pie!!!! I am so glad I have found this recipie.

This recipe is good except when I learned to make Pecan Pie, in LA ,we put pecan halves on the top spaced so you could cut slices.

Fabulous and easy! I used Splenda Brown Sugar and it came out perfect! Thank you!

Thank you for the tip on Splenda Brown Sugar. Great for diabetics.

I just made this for my husband who is from Oklahoma and he is thrilled that it tastes and looks so good.

I'm from OK too and Pecan Pie is a given on EVERY holiday.
