Homemade Pecan Pie Recipe

Homemade Pecan Pie recipe is a classic holiday dessert recipe traditionally served for Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert.



  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used my homemade vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup whole pecan halves
  • 1 regular unbaked pie crust (not deep dish)


  1. If using fresh un-shelled pecans crack and clean the pecans before starting the recipe.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F. degrees.
  3. Arrange the pecan halves in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell in a pleasing pattern. Place the pie pan on a cookie sheet.
  4. In a bowl whisk the eggs well.
  5. Add the sugar, corn syrup, melted butter, and vanilla to the bowl. Whisk until well blended.
  6. Slowly pour the filling over the pecans in the pie crust.
  7. If any of the pecan shift around rearrange them.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for one hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Cool on a cooling rack.
  10. Makes 8 servings.
