Grandma’s Famous Pecan Pie



For the Crust

1 1/3 cup organic all-purpose flour
1 tsp Wholesome Organic Cane Sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 tbsp chilled organic unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 tbsp ice water

For the Filling

1 cup Wholesome Organic Light Corn Syrup
1 cup Wholesome Organic Cane Sugar
3 cage-free organic eggs, slightly beaten
2 tbsp organic unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup chopped organic pecans


To make the crust:

Mix the flour, organic sugar and salt in a food processor.

Add butter slowly, using the on/off switch until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Blend enough water to form moist clumps of dough.

Remove dough and form into a ball, then flatten dough into a disk.

Wrap with plastic wrap and chill for one hour.

Roll dough on a floured work surface to a 13″ round size.

Transfer to a 9″ pie pan.

Trim and crimp the edges.

Chill in freezer for 15 minutes.

To make the pie filling:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Whisk the first five ingredients in a large bowl until blended.

Place organic pecans in the bottom of the pie shell.

Pour the filling mixture into the pie shell.

Bake the pie until set or a knife inserted into the center of the pie come out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
