Pecan Pie


I am a huge fan of Pecan Pie. Just the other day I made one from scratch at home and shared it with a few friends. Needless to say it disappeared in just a few minutes; and everyone loved it. Pecan Pie has a really soft flavor and its center is more or less sticky and gooey with pecan chunks in every bite and a nice delicate crust on top and the hard pie crust at the bottom. Really a yummy dessert if you haven't tried it yet. This will be worth your while. I've tried a few different pecan pie recipes but this one is by far one of the best. I absolutely loved it…

Ingredients

- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
- 2 cups chopped or crushed pecans
- 1 cup whole pecans
- 2 pie crusts
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

How to make it:


Preheat your oven to 400F or 200C and bake your pie crusts for about 5 minutes or until half way cooked. Then  remove from the oven and cover just the edges loosely in aluminum foil to avoid it from burning the edges. Lower your ovens temperature to 350F or 170C.

Then take a big bowl and mix together your sugar, corn syrup, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and eggs together and whisk it well until smooth.

Separately in a small pot heat up your butter for a few minutes until just melted. Now pour your warm butter, and chopped pecans into your bowl with the mixture and mix together to combine. Now pour in your mixture into both pie crusts and use the whole pecans to cover the top of the pie filling.

Bake it in the oven under 350F, for 1 hour. Then remove from the oven and allow it to cool for approximately 2 hours before serving. Can be served chilled or at room temperature.
