This is a delicious Southern dessert your friends and family will love you for making.

Pecan Pie Ingredients Needed:

I really think this pie must be served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream. I believe that is the perfect combination and it’s such a delicious dessert. I always make one of these pies during the holiday season. It’s easy to make and only a few ingredients but loaded in flavor.

Recipe feedback: “Oh yummy! I made this for our Thanksgiving meal. It was delicious! My husband wanted to know what all was in the filling because it was perfect. It’s certainly rich, but that’s what makes it delicious! Thank you for an amazing recipe!” – Terri

“We make this every Thanksgiving! My family loves it. Thank you for this fabulous recipe.”- Lorrie

“Tasted this pie about three years ago at Thanksgiving in Texas. I had always used Karo syrup but after tasting this my husband wants nothing but the maple pecan pie. Delicious.” – Debra

“This has been my “new” pecan pie recipe! I took a few to a pie auction back around Thanksgiving and got several facebook messages following asking for the recipe. The only thing I do different is replace the vanilla with Kahlua (with maybe a splash extra)….I’ve always put Kahlua in my pecan pies because it just gives them a little something extra. Thanks for the recipe!!” – Sissie

“Wanted to let you know this is the first time using pure maple syrup. . The pie was a hit and the flavor was out of the world compare to karo syrup.”- Debra
