My husband is a wonderful father to our three young adults. At any time of the year, he enjoys eating pecan pie topped with vanilla ice cream. Once you make it from scratch, you may never buy another pecan pie. If gluten poses no issues for you, use any flour of your choice.

Deep Dish Pecan Pie Ingredients
- 1 pie shell
- 2 cups of pecans
- 1 cup of corn syrup
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 6 TBSPs of butter
- 1 TBSP of flour
- 3/4 cup of sugar
Step By Step Directions for Pecan Pie
Measure out 2 cups of pecans.
- Any size pecan works.
- Watch for shells
Pour 1 ½ to 2 cups of pecans into a frozen or freshly made pie crust.
Spray or rub oil on measuring cup.
Pour out 1 cup of Corn Syrup.
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/4 tsp of salt
Whisk 3 eggs, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and 1/4 tsp of salt in a small bowl
Unwrap 6 TBSP of butter
Melt on low heat.
Then turn stove off.
Leave pan on warm burner.
1 TBSP of Flour
3/4 Cups of Sugar
In a saucepan, add 1 TBSP of flour and 3/4 cup of sugar then whisk.
If you are cooking on a gas stove top, complete step six using a warm pan or on the lowest heat setting. Turn the burner off before staring next step (7). Allow the mixture to cool slightly so that it won’t cook the eggs.
Add 1 cup of Corn Syrup, Whisk
Once mixture is cool to the touch, add bowl of egg mixture.
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
You need a fine mesh strainer
Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Place the pie filled with pecans on a cookie sheet. Ask for help.
Pour mixture into strainer.
Use a rubber spatula to get all the mixture out of the pan.
Stir mixture in strainer until it no longer strains
Pie shell is full. Do not use what is left in strainer, which is some egg that cooked. Take that to the sink, rinse, and put in dishwasher or a sink full of hot water.
Put the pecan pie in the oven. The cookie sheet will catch any spills.
Set a timer for 45 minutes.
When done, the top of the pecan pie looks cracked. Place pie on a cooling rack, which is on your kitchen counter away from the stove. Enjoy with or without a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Serve warm or later after pie cools.
