Another old family recipe. My great grandparents had a pecan ranch down in Texas until the Depression hit, so pecans have been popular in our family for a long time. This recipe is the culmination of a century of pecan pie baking and tasting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream butter, slowly beat in sugar and salt.
  2. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each.
  3. Blend remaining ingredients (except pecans) with mixer.
  4. Stir in pecans and pour into chilled pie shells. Cover pie shell edge with foil or guard.
  5. Bake 10 minutes at 450 degrees, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 35 minutes more or until set.

Excellent pecan pie. It's very easy to make and has a light texture to it. Recipe easily scales down to one pie which is what I did. Very nice, will make again.

Another great pecan pie recipe that we have enjoyed! The filling is a very light custard texture with a bit of a buttery rich flavor. I only made one pie and when I removed it from the oven the filling was quite high, I was afraid I did something wrong. No worries, after cooling the filling fit in the pie crust perfectly. A quick and wonderful pie!
