Perfect Pecan Pie

I have been a search for the perfect pecan pie recipe.  This may sound silly, but I remember when I was little, the local chicken restaurant would have individual pecan pie slices for sale in small plastic containers.  I thought these were just great at the time, and I have been a big pecan pie fan ever since.  I now know that just about anything sold in individual plastic containers like that is not as good as homemade so I have been looking for the right recipe. 

I found what I think is the best pie over at Southern Plate.  The only change I made was to the cooking time and that is because my oven cooks a little slow.  I had to extend the time by about 10 minutes, which I do with a lot of recipes.

3 eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup white corn syrup

3/4 stick butter, melted

1 cup chopped pecans, toasted

1 unbaked deep dish pie shell


In a medium bowl, beat eggs.  Blend in the sugar.


Stir in the remaining ingredients, mixing well.  Pour into the pie shell and place in a COLD oven.  Turn oven to 300 degrees and bake for 60-70 minutes.  Enjoy!
