I really love including Lyle’s Golden Syrup in this pie. It gives a depth to the pecan pie filling that I think just can’t be beat. If you can’t find Lyle’s at your supermarket (it’s usually stocked alongside the corn syrups, or in the Great Britain section), you can easily and affordably order it right here!

There really is something magical about a good Classic Pecan Pie…and the Classic Pecan Pie recipe delivers the magic, for sure! Truly easy to prepare, but a real show-stopper when it hits the holiday table!
