Mississippi Pecan Pie – Printable Recipe

Perfection in Pie

This pecan pie recipe has been in our family for generations. I remember my great-grandmother making this delectably delicious dessert when we would go back for a visit to the farm in Mississippi. It has always been a favorite of mine and it is Kirk’s all-time favorite. He wants this every year for his birthday.

So here, without any further ado…

Mississippi Pecan Pie
Printable Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1-Cup Dark Corn Syrup (Karo Syrup)
  • ¾ Cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 Tbs. Butter
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1-Cup Pecans, coarsely broken
  • 1 Pie Shell (see Non-Soggy Pie Crust)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Line a 9-inch pie tin with the pie dough. Allow the dough to extend over the edges of the pan about an inch to pinch into a stand-up-crust rim around the pie.
  • Boil Syrup and Sugar together about 2-minutes.
  • Pour syrup mixture slowly over slightly beaten Eggs, stirring as you pour.
  • Add Butter, Vanilla, and Pecans. Blend well.
  • Turn mixture into the pie shell.
  • Bake at 350° F, about 40-50 minutes.
  • Cool before cutting.

Pumpkin Butter Crescent Rolls

A Scrumptiously Simple Seasonal Treat!

One morning last week, Rory and I had a hankering for fresh baked crescent rolls to go with our coffee with Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup. While grabbing the package of crescent rolls from the refrigerator, I suddenly remembered that I had picked up a jar of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter on my last shopping trip thinking it would be a nice Fall treat. My taste buds tingled with the idea of combining the two items. It was easy as can be (only two ingredients) and super tasty too!

Pumpkin Butter Crescent Rolls

Ingredients:

  • Crescent Rolls
  • Pumpkin Butter

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven according to the Crescent Roll package.
  • Spread Pumpkin Butter on one side of dough triangle.
  • Place a small dollop of Pumpkin Butter in the middle of the large end of dough.
  • Roll the dough to make the crescent.
  • Bake as directed.

These are delicious! The Pumpkin Butter slightly caramelized on the edges, and the baking filled our home with the most amazing aroma. It was definitely a Fall treat we will enjoy again and again. I hope you enjoy it too.

Do you have any favorite Fall treats?

I would love it if you would Pin or Share this Recipe…
