Grandma's Foolproof Pecan Pie Recipe Is to Die For (No Corn Syrup)

The holidays just aren't the holidays without my grandma's pecan pie. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas there would be several pecan pies sitting on the counter waiting to be devoured by the family. My grandma's pecan pie was sweet dessert perfection.

This is one of the easiest pecan pie recipes you'll ever make, too. Really. It's almost foolproof it is so easy to make. Here is your short shopping list to bake this pie: brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, eggs, evaporated milk, vanilla, butter, pecans and a pie crust. The ingredients are put into a bowl, stirred well, poured into a pie crust and baked. So quick and easy!

This easy pecan pie recipe begs for a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

I know what you mean Donna. When I am going through my recipes and find those that were given to me by the special women in my life, I just love to see their hand writing. Somehow that makes them feel close again.

A piece of this pie puts me right back in my grandma's kitchen. Love how food can do that. So happy to pass on our tradition to a dear friend. Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds

Can this be done with deep dish pie crust? If so how much longer to bake?
Donna John
You could definitely do that!
Lita Morton
How long does this take to set?
Donna John
I'm not sure what you mean. It bakes, then I guess "sets" as it cools. Let us know how it turns out for you. My grandma's pie is really the best!
Julio Caro
Thanks For Sharing....

Will this freeze good?
Donna John
I have never frozen one, but I know my grandma did. So yes!
