Pecan Pie

This is my Grammie Abbott’s traditional pecan pie that my Mom makes every Thanksgiving in honor of Grammie. It’s an old-school recipe without any fancy fixings – it’s extremely easy to whip up but the nostalgic taste can’t be beat! I always found it best when finished with a dollop of cool-whip! Thanksgiving is no time to skip on homemade pie crust, so I recommend using my Pastry Pie Crust Recipe – however, in a pinch a pre-made refrigerated pie crust from the store will work.

This Pecan Pie combines a crisp and buttery pastry with a deliciously rich, sweet, dense, and chewy filling that is loaded with toasted pecans!
