Grandma’s Pecan Pie

Grandma’s Pecan Pie


This is my grandma’s quick and easy pecan pie recipe. It’s best served with ice cream or whipped cream on top.




What you need:

  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 c dark corn syrup
  • 3 T butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c pecans
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/8 t salt


  • 1 T flour
  • 1 T sugar
  • 9 inch pie shell

What you do:

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring 1/2 c sugar and corn syrup to a boil, stirring occasionally.  
  • Add butter and stir until combined; remove from heat.
  • Beat eggs in a medium bowl.  
  • Slowly pour hot mixture over eggs while stirring vigorously with fork (this must be done or the hot mixture will cook the eggs).  
  • Stir in vanilla, salt and pecans.
  • Place unbaked pie shell in a glass or metal pie pan.  
  • Mix flour and 1 T sugar over bottom of unbaked shell.  
  • Pour filling into shell.  
  • Bake in a preheated oven – 350 degrees for a glass pie pan, and 375 degrees for a metal pie pan – for 45 minutes or until nicely browned.
