This classic pecan pie is the PERFECT holiday dessert! My family loves pecan pie after Christmas dinner. It has the perfect combination of salty and sweet with the heavenly blend of vanilla and melted butter with toasted pecans. Mmmm!


  • 1 cup corn syrup (light)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 tbsp butter (melted)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 oz pecans (coarsely chopped)
  • 1 pie crust (9 inch deep dish frozen)


  • Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl or deep medium bowl, mix together the corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla with a spoon or whisk. Stir in the pecans and then pour the mixture into the flour pie dough crust. Place your pie pan in the oven and bake for 60-70 minutes or until the center of the pie reaches 200F.
  • Allow the pie to cool sufficiently for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.
