Southern Pecan Pie is another of my highly requested holiday pies. I’ve made as many as six pies for Thanksgiving Day to be able to give away a couple.
Personally, this is my favorite pie. Creamy sweet and rich! The holiday season is not complete without Southern Pecan Pie, I can assure you.
So if you’ve never baked your own pecan pie, two things are about to happen. You’re going to be amazed at how easy to make Southern Pecan Pie, and…your family and friends will be clamoring for more, more, more ~ Southern Pecan Pie.
Rich Texas Pecan Pie
We do love our pecan pie in Texas. You see, the pecan is our state tree. It still grows wild by our state’s rivers as lovingly planted by fat and happy Texas squirrels.
There are as many pecan pie recipes out there as there are stars in the big Texas sky. And of course, there is the famous basic pecan pie recipe from Karo Syrup.
That being said, every baker has their favorite recipes and has made subtle changes to that basic recipe to add a little of their own personal touch to it. This rich, buttery pecan pie is my take on that most basic of all pie recipes.
My pecan pies are requested almost as much as my Buttermilk Pies are. So now I’ll share my secrets here with you!
