I don’t typically bake pies all year round. I suppose I reserve my pie baking for special occasions and holidays. I’m not really sure why that is, because pies really aren’t difficult to make, especially the recipe that I am going to share with you today, this Classic EASY Pecan Pie recipe!
This Pecan Pie recipe is so easy, I should really make it a year-round dessert. Because while Pecan Pie is just about as important to your Thanksgiving meal as the turkey, I kind of feel like it should get some love on a random Wednesday in March as well. Let’s make it happen!
What is Pecan Pie?
Pecan Pie is Southern baking at its finest. It’s a pie made from pecans, with a filling that includes butter, sugar, eggs, and Karo® Corn Syrup. The subtle sweetness of the Karo® Corn Syrup is what really sets this recipe apart from the rest.
And, this Easy Pecan Pie Recipe is the perfect pie recipe for beginners, or for kids to get involved in the holiday meal prep.
How to Make Pecan Pie
The steps for this Pecan Pie recipe are so easy. All you do is mix together your Karo® Corn Syrup (you can use light or dark), your eggs, granulated sugar, butter, vanilla, and pecans!
You can certainly make your own pie crust, but for a time saver, which is great when you’re trying to prepare for a big meal, you can use a frozen deep dish pie crust, or even the rolled up crusts. I love taking any short cuts I can around the holidays, when I have a lot of different dishes to prepare.
Trust me, the filling of this pie is the start of the show, so it doesn’t matter too much what kind of crust you use!
You can enjoy your Pecan Pie with ice cream on top, whipped cream, or on it’s own. The crunchy pecans, paired with the sweet filling, is guaranteed to bit a hit.
The beauty of this Easy Pecan Pie recipe is that the prep time is less than 10 minutes, and you can make this pie in advance, so you’re not struggling with desserts the day of your family gathering. It’s a fantastic pie recipe, that you can rely on to turn out perfectly every time.
