Welcome, fellow food enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into one of my favorite treats: the classic Southern Pecan Pie. This recipe is a holiday staple, featuring a rich, custardy filling and a crispy, nutty topping. So, let’s get started and bake something delicious together!


For this mouthwatering Pecan Pie, you will need:

  • 200g or 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 230g or 1 cup of light corn syrup
  • 4 large eggs
  • 60g or 1/4 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 300g or 2 cups of pecans
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell


  1. Preheat your oven to 175°C or 350°F.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the sugar, corn syrup, butter, and salt together. Remove from heat.
  3. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Gradually add the sugar mixture, stirring continuously. Stir in the vanilla extract and pecans.
  4. Pour the filling into the pie shell. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until set.

  • If the pie browns too quickly, cover it with aluminum foil.
  • For the best flavor, use fresh pecans.
  • The pie will set as it cools, so don’t worry if it seems a bit jiggly when you take it out of the oven.
