For Thanksgiving...

This is my favorite pecan pie recipe. My Aunt LuLu had it written in the back of a cookbook and would make it every year on Thanksgiving. My dad loves it.

Aunt LuLu’s Pecan Pie

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
4 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
1-1 1/4 cup pecan halves


Combine butter, sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Let cool slightly. Add eggs, vanilla and salt to mixture; mix well.
Pour filling into unbaked pastry shell and top with pecan halves.
Bake at 325 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes. Serve warm or cold.


  1. Now that sounds good! :-)

    I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving Day.

  3. I made this peacan pie, from you Aunt Lu Lu's recipe, for Thnaksgiving. It was outstanding! It came out so good! Thank you so much for sharing it. I'm going to make another one for Christmas (and probably ever year from now on)
