About 20 years ago while cleaning out her grandmother’s kitchen, Cindy Remaley found this recipe scribbled on a piece of paper that said “granny’s pecan pie.” Cindy said the pie is super easy to make, and her kids all agree it’s the best pecan pie ever. Cindy is the care liaison at Country Meadow Care Center and Crestline Nursing Center in Ohio.


1 cup white corn syrup

1 cup dark brown sugar

1/3 tsp. salt

1/3 cup melted butter

1 tsp. vanilla

3 whole eggs, very lightly beaten

1 cup whole pecans (you can use pecan pieces for a pretty top)

1 unbaked pie shell


Line a nine inch pie pan with unbaked pie shell.

Bake the pie shell at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, and let cool.

Mix syrup, sugar, salt, butter and vanilla in a medium bowl.

Add the beaten eggs.

Pour mixture into the cooled pie shell and sprinkle pecans all over the top of the pie.

Bake 45-55 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Let the pie cool to set.
