Grandma's Old-Fashioned Pecan Pie Recipe

My husband and mother both LOVE pecan pie and the following recipe is one that I got from my grandmother about 15 years ago. Pecan pie is really easy to make so it's a great recipe for beginner bakers.

Grandma's Old-Fashioned Pecan Pie Recipe

3 large eggs
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup orange juice (not from concentrate)
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole pecan halves
9" unbaked pie shell

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, beat the large eggs until fluffy. Stir in the molasses, light corn syrup, orange juice and vanilla extract. Blend until all ingredients are well combined. Stir in the whole pecan halves by hand.

Pour the pie filling into your unbaked pie shell. Bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and let pie cool on a wire rack. Store cooled pie in an airtight pie container.
