Family Favorite Pecan Pie

I HAVE to share this recipe with you for the holidays.  No holiday is complete without Pecan Pie!  My brother owns a pecan orchard so we have tried MANY pecan pie recipes. This is truly one of our favorites. It is not too sweet and has more of a custard flavor to it. It especially helps that we have access to fresh pecans!  


  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2-cup sugar
  • 1/3 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cups melted butter
  • 1-cup corn syrup
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 deep-dish unbaked pie shell


  • Combine eggs, sugar, salt, butter and syrup; mix well.
  • Put pecans in bottom of pie shell and pour mixture over.
  • Bake at 375 for 45 minutes.
  • If pie shell browns too much, cover with crown of foil over the crust. This keeps the crust from burning.
