  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups ground pecans
  • 1 tablespoon clear vanilla flavoring
  • 1 Basic Pie Crust


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cream butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and whisk to blend well. Add corn syrup, pecans, and vanilla and mix well.

Pour into prepared pie crust. Bake until pie puffs and is golden, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Pie will deflate a bit as it cools.

Makes one 9-inch pie, 6 servings.

"During the fall, we pick pecans and always shell them to store in the freezer to use in pies and other desserts. Most people make pecan pies with pecan halves. But I've been making this one, with ground pecans, for years and it's become my signature pie! I think you'll like the difference in the texture." Recipe from "Eula Mae's Cajun Kitchen Cookbook"

    I'm so glad there is actually a REAL recipe for this using GROUND pecans.....I made a mistake and put most of the only pecans I had on hand in a blender meaning to coarsely chop them....the button stuck and i ended up with ground pecans :/ I threw in what whole pecans I had left and mixed them both into the recipe....I feel better now that someone actually has a recipe for this and its came out great....thanks...hoping mine does also....they are still cooking in oven.Will let you know.

    Made this pecan pie and it was delicious. Not overly sweet,like many other pecan pies I have eaten. The use of ground pecans instead of whole is different but you get pecans in every bite!
