Down-home Texas pecan pie that's not overly sweet. Easy to make, and great served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a few lines of chocolate syrup.

This tastes like a pie that my mom would make!! The only thing I did differently is that I actually roast my pecans in butter first before I put them in the pie. My mom did this as well, and I like the way it makes the pie taste.


Mom had made pecan pies for years and they were very sweet, but at Christmas she asked me if I'd fix one for my brother. I got this recipe instead because you said it wasn't as sweet. I made this pecan pie (my 1st) and it was great. I did put 3/4 cup brown sugar and used light corn syrup (mainly because it was the only kind I had and didn't want to go to store in mid pie. I also threw in a few extra nuts. My mom said it was great (It had been so long I don't think she knew the diffence between the recipes until I told her, but it was a big hit with everyone at Christmas


Last year my Dad moved from Texas up here to NY to be closer to his children. His family is originally from the South. When he was asked by my sister if he had a favorite dessert he would like for Thanksgiving, he said he would like a Pecan Pie, but he was sure she wouldn't know how to make it. Well, determined to make my Dad's favorite, I got on "the Net" to find a recipe and found Mike's. His sister came in for Thanksgiving too (another Southerner). They both commented that this was by far the best pecan pie they ever tasted. I had to admit it was the best I ever had too, because I never had or even baked one before. I had always heard how rich they were. We heated up the pieces and put French Vanilla ice cream on them...Thank you Mike!!!...BTW...I ended up making 2 of them for Christmas last year, and there wasn't a single piece of crust left of them by the end of the evening.
