Mississippi Pecan Pie – Printable Recipe

Mississippi Pecan Pie - Life With Lorelai

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…

  • Pour syrup mixture slowly over slightly beaten Eggs, stirring as you pour.

  • Turn mixture into the pie shell.
