Pecan Pie Recipe

This easy pecan pie recipe has a deep-rooted history. Many people are under the impression that pecan pie was originally developed as a Southern dessert, but in actual fact, pecan pie was developed as a promotional recipe for corn syrup as early as the 1920s. Our pecan pie recipe is not far from the original recipe and will always make you want just one more slice.

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C)
  2. Roll out the pastry into a thin round. Line a 9-inch (21 cm) pie pan with the pastry and crimp the edges. Sprinkle the pecan pieces evenly into the pastry shell.
  3. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl, and stir in the syrup, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt. Pour over the pecans and dot evenly with the butter.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 325°F (160°C), and bake until the filling is almost firm in the center, about 25 minutes.
  5. Cool the pie on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream. Enjoy!
