Pie Week continues with Pecan Pie, a scrumptious classic that is perfect just the way it is.
As I was brainstorming recipes for Thanksgiving pies, I was trying to come up with twists on the standard fare, or something completely new and creative. But when it came to pecan pie, I just couldn’t mess with it.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Pecan pie has become a favorite of mine since I reached adulthood and realized its value. It’s just so good. Like candy, only better, because it comes in a buttery crust.
Would you believe that this is actually the first pecan pie I’ve ever baked? My brother has been the expert pecan pie baker in my family, but since I’d be celebrating the holidays away from home, it was time I bake one myself.
And I discovered the second best thing about pecan pie, that it’s so easy to make! A simple mixture of brown sugar, butter, eggs, corn syrup, and pecans is poured into a shell of pie dough and baked for an hour. And that’s it. You couldn’t ask for a simpler homemade pie recipe for Thanksgiving.
