Amazing Southern Pecan Pie

5 from 24 votes


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups corn syrup
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans coarsely broken
  • 1 unbaked deep dish pie shell


  • In saucepan boil sugar and corn syrup together for 2 to 3 minutes; set aside to cool slightly.
  • In large bowl beat eggs lightly and very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the eggs, stirring constantly.
  • At this point I like to strain the mixture to make sure it’s smooth and lump free.
  • Stir in butter, vanilla, and pecans and pour into crust.
  • Bake in a 350°F oven for about 45 to 60 minutes or until set.
