This pie was always a favorite for birthdays while my children were grouping up. They never liked the typical party cakes. My mother gave me the old-fashioned recipe for lard turns out every time!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:8-10 servings


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups dark corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)


  • 1. In a large bowl, beat eggs just until blended but not frothy. Add the sugar, salt and corn syrup. Stir butter and vanilla just until blended. Spread pecans in the bottom of pie shell. Pour in filling.
  • 2. Place in a 350° oven and immediately reduce heat to 325°. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8-10 servings.
