Easy Southern Pecan Pie Recipe

October 18, 2021 | By Ernesto M. Becerra

Holidays are fast-approaching, so let us reduce the stress with a simple pecan pie recipe!

Whether it is for Thanksgiving, New Years, or anywhere in-between, Pecan pies are synonymous to southern hospitality, which is why we’re focusing on an easy pecan pie recipe traditional to the south. To make matters even easier, this easy pecan pie recipe comes prepped in a jar. Yes, you heard that right, a jar! 

Thanks to the Great San Saba River Pecan Company, an award-winning company carrying gourmet all-natural products for more than 10 years, the holiday cooking stress has been simplified, to say the least. With more than 10,000 pecan trees growing in Central Texas, the Great San Saba River Company combines the greatness of the rich-soil in Texas with southern style traditions to create old-fashioned food products.

Sugar, corn syrup, and natural pecans are the essential ingredients to create a delicious pecan pie in-a-jar as an easy yet delectable solution! A single pecan pie in-a-jar can be utilized for two full pies or various small pies for those looking for a quick bite.

The Great San Saba River Pecan Company gives you two separate options: using a ready-made pie crust or using the pecan pie filling with a homemade pie crust. TerraMar Imports helps you go through each one in case you’re feeling like providing a full southern style pecan pie this holiday season.
