Pecan Pie

I totally meant to post this over the weekend. It was a part of my Father’s day series of recipes (I’ve been posting the favorite dessert recipes of all of the fathers in my life), but a couple of them were pushed aside last week to make room for 4th of July posts! I had planned to make them “bonus” posts for the weekend, but you know how plans go…

Pecan Pie is my Grandpa Epps’s favorite dessert. In fact, he ended up with TWO pecan pies on Father’s day! Our recent move has landed us much closer to family, and it was so neat to be able to actually visit with my dad and his dad on the day we celebrate dads! We listened to Grandpa tell WWII stories and falling in love stories, and the bits and pieces I caught (in between mommy-ing and chatting with Dixie) were pretty special moments to hear about. I’m so grateful for the opportunities I have to learn about my Grandpa’s life as told by him.

I’m also grateful he loves pecan pie, because I’ll take any excuse I can to scarf down a slice!

This is a simple, classic pecan pie. It’s golden, gooey, and delicious in the center with a crispy, crunchy pecan top. As with any pie, I love this best served warm or room temp with a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream!

  1. LOVE pecan pie. It’s the best!! And family favorites make it even better. :)

  2. How wonderful to get to have those conversations with your grand father! And pecan pie is my favorite too! This looks perfect!

  3. Oh wow, that pie looks incredible! I recently realized I love pecan pie. I made some bars that I am posting soon and honestly am madly in love with pecan pie and basically have no idea why I wasn’t that into it until recently. I’d love a slice of this! Pinned!

  4. My Grandpa loves Peacan Pie too! Must be a thing ;) I’m definitely not one of those people who things that pecan pie is too sweet or rich…but I’ve been too scared to make it myself! I’ll have to give this recipe a try.

  5. I can never resist a pecan pie! And it’s a perfect Dad’s Day pie too, because I’ve never met a man who doesn’t love it.

  6. Nice! Just like grandma’s!

  7. Pecan Pie is actually one of my favorites, but I never make it since my husband won’t eat nuts (???). I think I’m going to have to make this ALL FOR ME – it looks fab!!

  8. Looks delish, Ashton! This is one my hubby’s favs so I’ll definitely be giving it a try. :)
