My Grandma's Pecan Pie Recipe

(Dress: SavingPaige / Boots: Amazon)

Not going to lie, this year, the holidays are going to be tough. We actually already celebrated Thanksgiving with my family and it was hard not having Grandma there this year. I attempted to make her pecan pie and wellllll let's just say it turned out a little more toasted than it should have been, and I may have used maple syrup instead of corn syrup bahahah! Learn from my mistake and READ THE INSTRUCTIONS haha!

Pecan pies were actually one of the first things I remember my grandma teaching me how to bake. All of us grand kids would spend the night and would help grandma shell the pecans, after we shelled them she would cut them into tiny pieces. Then the magic of mixing all of the ingredient would happen and it never failed I would always stick my finger in the bowl for a taste, and I almost always got yelled at because of the raw eggs haha. No matter how many times she told me not to eat the raw mixture, every year I would try it again... it was tradition hahah

We will be celebrating Thanksgiving with Nate's side of the family this year so I'll be attempting to make the pecan pie again. Fingers crossed I use the correct ingredients and I don't burn this one haha. I guess I should have paid more attention to the actual baking part instead of the taste testing part. haha.


Pecan Pie Recipe


  • 3 eggs, beaten

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 cup dark corn syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1 cup pecans

  • 1 unbaked 9 inch Pie shell

  • 1 Tablespoon flour


Mix eggs, sugar, corn syrup, butter, and vanilla. Poke holes in frozen pie shell with a fork. Spread the pecans in the bottom of the Pie shell. Pour pie filling on top. Cover edges of pie shell with any remaining melted butter and cover it with tin foil until the last 10 minutes. Bake at 450 degress for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degress for 25-30 minutes or until done.


Hopefully you do a better job at not burning your pie than I did this first go around haha. I know this year is going to feel different for most of us this year with everything going on. With that being said I pray you still have a happy and blessed Thanksgiving with your family via in person or through video chat! Happy Thanksgiving.

Much Love, Reba Faye
