Pecan Pie

This year for Thanksgiving,
my son requested a pecan pie.
I haven't made a pecan pie in many years and
was happy to make one for him.
Pecan pie is really very easy to make and
so delicious!

Pecan Pie

  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (9 inch) refrigerated pie crust
Cooking Directions
  1. Place pie crust into a 9 inch pie plate. Flute edges. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ยบ
  3. In a small bowl, combine pecans with 1 tablespoon melted butter and salt. Spread on a baking sheet and toast until fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, corn syrup, brandy, vanilla extract and remaining butter. Stir in eggs. Add toasted pecans. Pour filling into pie crust.
  5. Place on bottom rack in oven until the center of the pie feels gelatin-like when pressed with the back of a spoon. Bake about 50 to 60 minutes. Transfer pie to wire rack to cool.
Serve with whipped cream if desired.

Pie, Pecan
