BEST EVER Pecan Pie (No Corn Syrup!)

BEST EVER Pecan Pie

Pecan pie has long been one of my ultimate favorite foods.  It is rich, gooey, and so, so good. Most pecan pies are traditionally made with corn syrup, but my pecan pie is made with butter – which makes it  the BEST EVER as far as I’m concerned.  The butter makes all the difference.

Don’t let it’s crackled appearance fool you.  Remember what your mama used to tell you?  It’s not what is on the outside, but what is in the inside.  The very same principal applies to this pie!  It is the BEST pecan pie I have ever had & never lasts long in our house.

Here is what you need:

BEST EVER Pecan Pie

Beat the eggs until frothy.

BEST EVER Pecan Pie

Stir in melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, & flour.

BEST EVER Pecan Pie

Fold in the milk, vanilla, & pecans.

BEST EVER Pecan Pie

Pour into the prepared pie crust.

BEST EVER Pecan Pie

Bake on 400 degrees for 10 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 & cook for about 45 minutes.  After it has cooked for 20 minutes total, it would be a good idea to remove it from the oven & cover the pie crust with a pie crust shield, or tin foil to prevent burning.

Allow the pie to cool on a wire rack.  The pie will deflate a little while it cools, and the top will crackle a bit.

    Well, thank you Annie! When I first made it this way years ago (ran out of corn syrup & used butter instead), it didn’t look anything like the typical pecan pie, but tasted wonderful. I have just always referred to it as ‘Ugly Pecan Pie’.

    Do you bake the crust first?

    • http://MrsHappyHomemaker.com/ Crystal

      Nope, you sure don’t. Use an unbaked pie crust.
