I have to credit my Aunt Rita for this recipe (beyond that, I’m not sure where it came from… but I’m betting my Mamaw and great-aunt Juanita had something to do with it!)
This is the yummiest pie ever. I am serious. Ask anyone in my family what their favorite pie is, and it will be this one. And, I am sharing it with you, my dear readers… just in time for Thanksgiving!
Aunt Rita’s Pecan Pie
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup white corn syrup
1 cup pecans, whole or chopped
- Add flour to sugar
- Add butter to sugar/flour and cream together
- Add slightly beaten eggs, salt, vanilla, and syrup: mix well
- Add pecans and stir
- Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake in slow 300° oven for 75 minutes (depends on your oven… begin checking after 1 hour, and then check every 10 minutes thereafter), or until pie is not “shaky”
- Let sit a few minutes before serving.
- Enjoy a warm slice with a nice glass of milk!
Just so you all know, my husband did NOT want me to share this recipe… he wanted the “goods” all to himself (giggle).
