Here’s an easy and delicious pecan pie recipe you can make in no time that they will be sure to gobble up…in no time!

Southern Pecan Pie


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 cups corn syrup (I use 1/2 dark and 1/2 light)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1⁄4 cup butter
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1⁄2 cups pecans, coarsely broken
  • 1 unbaked deep dish pie shell


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • 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
  • 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

Happy Thanksgiving from Hilton Head Island!
