Pecan pie recipe

The blog seems to be turning into a repository for family recipes, which I’m pretty happy about (: Please enjoy!

This recipe is from my great aunt (by marriage, but she may have been related from another direction too. There were some first-cousin marriages). Unlike most pecan pie recipes, it features a not-too-sweet filling. (The pecans weren’t included in the original recipe, so please use your judgement on how many to add.)

Pecan Pie Recipe

(Probably meant to fill 9-inch pie pan)
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
(Not in original recipe, but about 8oz of pecans, chopped)
Uncooked pie shell
Mix ingredients. Pour into pie shell. Bake about 25 min at 350°F.


Pecan pie is usually too sweet, so I was considering subbing brown rice syrup, which is super viscous, but not very sweet, for the corn syrup. Then again, this recipe is supposed to be perfect.
