The Camellia Grill's pecan pie is justifiably famous; oodles of 'em are eaten in-house at this beloved and venerable Uptown eatery, and they say they ship pies all over the country. They used to hand out a little card with the recipe, but they don't anymore. Here's what was on the card!
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 1 1⁄4 cups light corn syrup
- 1 1⁄4 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
- 1 cup pecans, chopped
- Beat eggs with a wire whisk or fork.
- Add salt, butter, syrup, sugar and vanilla; mix well.
- Pour into pastry shell; sprinkle with pecans.
- Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes.
Hi..I haven't tried this recipe yet and I have never baked a pecan pie!!! So, I am a little concerned should it come out "runny" as per some comments posted. Another fellow RecipeZaar member noted in another post the following suggestion: "Bake at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes or until center is set. If using an electric oven you might have to add 15 to 20 minutes to the baking time. In either case, test with a toothpick after 45 minutes." This is going to be my plan, keeping my fingers crossed! I'll let you know if this does the trick...thanks for posting. :)
Fantastic pecan pie! Made it for my husbands birthday as he doesn't like cake and requested pecan pie. I think we've started a new tradition! We will be using this recipe from now on. I also let the pecan float to the top so they were glazed, and had to adjust the cooking time to about 70 mins.
