Easy as (Pecan) Pie

Hi Friends!

In an effort to get things ready early for our Friendsgiving party tomorrow night, I decided to bake pies and do as much as I could today since there always seems to be last minute errands and grocery trips the day you are hosting a party.

This is my favorite pecan pie recipe that I have adapted from my grandmothers recipe and several others over the last few years.  It is super simple, and friends and family seem to (er...) gobble it up!  PSA - I don't know if I will ever be able to make pretty crusts, but someday I hope to learn... until then I'll focus on the filling!


  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 cup Karo syrup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans
  • 4 tbs. melted butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla


  • roll out pie crust and pinch in pie dish (there is a much prettier way to do this)
  • preheat oven to 350° 
  • whisk all ingredients EXCEPT pecans
  • pour mixture in pan
  • pour pecans in mixture
  • bake for 70- 75 minutes (until middle is no longer jiggly and crust is golden brown)
