Pecan Pie I

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This pie has lots and lots of pecan stirred into the filling. And it 's a basic recipe that takes kindly to adding extra ingredients, if you 're so inclined. Try chocolate or a jigger of Jack Daniels.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • In a medium-sized bowl, stir together eggs, syrup, sugar, flour, and vanilla until well blended.
  • Stir in pecans.
  • Pour mixture into pastry shell.
  • Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven 50 to 55 minutes, until a knife inserted half-way between center and edge comes out clean. Cool.
  • Variations:
    * Add 4 ounces sweet baking chocolate and reduce sugar to 1/2 cup
    * Add 2-3 tablespoons Jack Daniels liquor or Amaretto liqueur
