FAVORITE Family Pecan Pie


  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 2/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 Cup Light Karo
  • chopped Pecans


  1. Form the crust into the pie dish (mine is not the prettiest! ) then fill the bottom with chopped pecans.   This step is your preference, you can have as much or as little as you would like.
  2. Melt the 1/2 stick of butter and whisk in the remaining ingredients: 2/3 Cup of Sugar, 1 tsp.vanilla, 3/4 Cup Light Karo, 3 eggs.
  3. Pour the liquid over the pecans.  The pecans will slowly rise to the surface...
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for around 45 minutes.  You will need to use some foil or crust cover around the edges during most of the baking so the crust doesn't get too brown.
