Southern Pecan Pie

Sometimes simple is absolutely perfect. This simple recipe is one that I didn’t tinker with almost at all – Grandma’s recipe even called for margarine!


  • 1 unbaked pastry shell
  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup Earth Balance, melted
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup pecan halves

Yield: one 9” pie

Preheat oven to 350o

Beat eggs with sugar, corn syrup and melted Earth balance. Add a dash of salt and vanilla. Add pecans. Pour into pie shell. Bake for 50 minutes or until knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool before serving.
