I remember growing up in the 50's, that for all the family reunions and church picnics, my Great Aunt Beaufort always brought her homemade pecan pies. they were a favorite among many, including myself. I grabbed a piece just as soon as I could, because I knew they would get gone quickly.

Ad

A couple of years ago, her granddaughter gave me the recipe. It calls for ingredients like a pinch of salt and butter the size of a large egg and just a few instructions as to how to put it together.

Her pies were always thin so I assumed she made 2 pies with this recipe. I have made several of the pies and all have been good. I have finally gotten it to taste like what I remember as a child.

For me, it has to be gluten free. I use a gluten free pie crust mix purchased from Wal-mart.

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 2 pies

Ingredients:

  • 2 pie shells (I used gluten free)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Karo dark corn syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 Tbsp butter (melted)
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups broken pecans

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Bake 2 pie crusts slightly (approximately 10 minutes)
  3. Beat eggs with a fork. Add sugar, Karo Syrup, salt, vanilla and melted butter and beat well with the fork.
  4. Ad

  5. Pour batter into 2 slightly baked pie crusts.
  6. Sprinkle 1 cup of pecans all over each pie.
  7. Bake 350 degrees F until pie thickens and browns, approximately 30 minutes.
  8. Cool before slicing.

A good pecan pie with raisins in it. An old family favorite.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Mix the sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Beat the egg yolks until light lemon colored and thick. Gradually beat the sugar mixture into the egg yolks. Add in the pecans, raisins, and melted butter.

Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry, and fold into the sugar mixture along with the vinegar. Don't mix the egg whites and vinegar, just put the whites in the bowl with the rest and while you gently fold them in, drizzle in the vinegar. Mix well, but do not beat! Pour into the pie shell.

Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, then reduce to 350 degrees, and bake for 25 minutes more, until browned and set. Cool, chill, and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. MMM!

A delicious creamy pie with easy meringue and flaky crust, which is easy and not too expensive to make.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a skillet melt a tablespoon of butter on low heat. Add nuts and toss until coated and the oils start to release (about a minute and a half). Remove from heat and set aside.

Bake pie shells in oven until lightly golden brown. While pie crusts are baking:

Pie Filling: Separate four egg yolks from whites and set aside whites for meringue. In a mixing bowl, cream together the egg yolks and granulated sugar until smooth. Add flour and vanilla and continue to blend until smooth.

In a heavy saucepan, pour one can evaporated milk and one can of water. Bring to a gentle boil then lower heat. Add a tablespoon of butter or margarine.

Pour in egg yolk mixture stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Continue cooking until mixture starts to thicken, then lower heat and add the butterscotch chips and pecans. Pour pie filling into crusts.

Meringue: Beat egg whites until stiff. Add tablespoon of sugar and beat until meringue has stiff peaks. Spoon on top of pies and place in oven. Bake until the meringues are golden brown. Cool completely. Serve.

How do I use a store bought pie crust for my pecan pies, and make it so they do not stick or get too brown on top?

By Kay

If you mean the store pie shells already in an aluminum pan:

Avoiding the crust sticking to the pan-You can try to remove the shell from the pan and spray Pam on the pan (may break the shell).

Avoiding too much browning on the edge-You can simply cut strips of aluminum foil and lightly mold the strips around the edge of the shell to avoid further browning when the color is to your liking. There are also metal baking rings available for this purpose

I made two pecan pies and the syrup went under the crust while baking, can you tell me what I did wrong? I did prick the crust with fork before pouring the syrup mix. Thank you. I don't have a picture, we ate it any way.

Try making a Southern Chess Pie. It's a pecan pie that uses brown sugar instead of syrup. Trust me, it's just as good.
