Pecan Pie is a dessert that everyone enjoys. Luby’s Pecan Pie is one of the most requested desserts from Luby’s during the Holidays. If you aren’t near a Luby’s, you can still make pecan pie just like they do. You know, you don’t have to wait for a holiday to make a pecan pie; you can make one any night of the week.
Luby’s Pecan Pie
Pecan pie is one of the easiest pies to make. If you can measure, mix, and stir, you can make a delicious pecan pie that will have everyone wondering how you made such a fantastic dessert. Don’t tell anyone that it took you only a few minutes to put this pie together. You may even use one of the higher end frozen pie shells so you don’t have to make your own pie shell from scratch.
Do you have some dishes that you simply must have to make a festive meal complete? I personally can’t imagine a Christmas celebration without my Grandmother’s Hello Dolly cookies. You didn’t have to make anything but Hello Dolly cookies; if they were present, I knew it was time for Christmas celebrations to begin.
Luby's Pecan Pie
Luby's Cafeteria is known for their delicious pies, this one makes no exception.
- 1 9 inch unbaked pie shell
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and set aside. In a medium sized bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, and salt. Combine and mix well. The mixture should be smooth before you pour it into the pie shell. Place pecans in the pie shell. The pecans will float to the top as the pie cooks. Bake for approximately an hour, or until the center is set.
You can serve this pie with whipped cream if you desire. Recipe adapted from Houston Chronicle Recipe.Print Recipe
