Classic Pecan Pie, a scrumptious pie recipe with simple ingredients. Also easy to make, perfect for Thanksgiving!

Classic Pecan Pie has become one of my favorite desserts this time of year. Like our favorite apple crumb pie, it’s always on the dessert table at Thanksgiving; and it’s usually a safe bet that my mom will have one sitting on her kitchen counter at different times throughout the year.

It’s funny, ’cause when I was younger, I didn’t like pecan pie at all (or maybe I just thought I didn’t). I’ve really grown to love it over the last few years.

I don’t know which is my favorite, the crunchy pecans that float to the top or the delicious sweet and somewhat salty pie filling that gives pecan pie its unique flavor. Mmmm, it’s just so good!

Also, pecan pie is so easy to make; it’s not one bit complicated. Make a crust, mix up the filling, pour it into the crust, and presto… It’s ready to bake.

How to make the dreamiest most scrumptious Classic Pecan Pie. This is easily my family’s favorite pecan pie recipe, especially in fall and around Thanksgiving.

TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE PECAN PIE

  • Using a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. And by cream, I mean mix together really well until it becomes a creamy mixture.
  • Lightly beat the eggs together. Then mix them into the butter/sugar mixture.
  • Add dark corn syrup and vanilla to the mixture, mixing well.
  • Stir in the pecans by hand.
  • Pour the pie filling into your unbaked pie crust.
  • Bake the pie at 450° for about 10 minutes. Then reduce the heat to 350° and bake an additional 30 minutes.
  • You may want to use a pie shield or a strip of aluminum foil to keep the edges of your pie crust from getting too dark or burning.
  • When your pie is fully cooked through, remove it from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  • Serve with a creamy delicious dollop of whipped cream!

KITCHEN TOOLS YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE PECAN PIE

Mixing Bowl – Handy for mixing up the pie crust and even the pie filling if you’re using a hand mixer.

Stand Mixer or Hand Mixer – My mixer is the one small kitchen appliance I wouldn’t want to live without. I love it and use it all the time.

Glass Measuring Cup – for measuring out liquids, beating the eggs, etc.

Pie Plate – Can’t bake a pie without this.

Pie Shield or Aluminum Foil – to keep the edges of your crust from burning.

Wire Rack – for cooling the pie.

Coffee Maker with Coffee – Some of my favorite memories are dessert with my grandmother. She always loved a hot cup of coffee with her dessert.
