What is Pecan Pie?

Pecan Pie is Southern baking at its finest. It’s made from pecans, with a filling that includes butter, sugar, eggs, and Karo® Corn Syrup. The subtle sweetness of the Karo® Corn Syrup is what really sets this recipe apart from the rest.

And, this is the perfect pie recipe for beginners, or for kids to get involved in the holiday meal prep.

How to Make Pecan Pie

The steps for this recipe are so easy. All you do is mix together your Karo® Corn Syrup (you can use light or dark), your eggs, granulated sugar, butter, vanilla, and pecans!

You can certainly make your own pie crust, and I have a really great pie crust recipe here on my site, but for a time saver, which is great when you’re trying to prepare for a big meal, you can also use a frozen deep dish pie crust, or even the rolled up crusts. I love taking any short cuts I can around the holidays, when I have a lot of different dishes to prepare.

Trust me, the filling of this pie is the start of the show, so it doesn’t matter too much what kind of crust you use!

The pie is done when center reaches 200°F. Tap center surface of pie lightly – it should spring back when done. If pie crust is over-browning, cover edges with foil.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

Made this for the first time and the taste was great! I too will reduce the amount of sugar for next time. My only problem was the crust was sticking to the bottom. I baked for 75 min too! I used the frozen deep crust not sure what went wrong?!

Hi, this was really easy to make. That said, I did tweak your recipe a bit – halved the Karo and sugar (don’t like too sweet desserts) and added a little bit of evap milk just to be wild!

Flavor was good, my only problem was it being too sweet and I don’t know why but it did not solidify all that well it was great on top but the middle was runny, I will try again but next time less sugar and less corn syrup maybe the pie shell was not deep enough?

Could you use brown sugar? Or a combo of white and brown sugar? I just thought that might give it an adaptional depth of flavor and richness.

I love this pie recipe so much. I will follow this recipe, my next cook 🙂
