Hi friends,
Someone volunteerd me to make a pecan pie for Thanksgiving at a large gathering. They did this with good intentions as she likes my pies. However, I have never made a pecan pie because I don't like pecans. I need your help please. I need a TRIED AND TRUE BEST EVER recipe, one that you have made yourself with all the oohs and aahs. I am not interested in website links. Just want something you know to be the best. Thank you for your time and help with this.

RE: recipe: (n) pecan pie asap

I first had this pie several years ago at a restaurant in Winnie, Texas. It was so good that I asked the woman who bakes the pies for her recipe, and it's all I've used ever since:

Mrs. Allen's Pecan Pie

1 Cup sugar
3/4 C. light corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
4 Tbsp. melted butter
1 Cup chopped pecans
1 9" prepared pie crust (unbaked)

Mix first four ingredients, add butter and pecans. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 degress F for about 45 minutes, or until done (the center doesn't jiggle).

Thank you all so much for your help. Who knew, I always thought it had bourban in it.

My hubby likes this one better than the traditional, as it's not quite as sweet.

RE: recipe: (n) pecan pie asap

The one difference I have found to kick Pecan Pie up a notch is to brown the butter. Careful not to burn. Mix the sugar into this, then other ingredients. The browning caramelizes the sugars in the milk.

To answer the question that is sure to arise, no, one cannot brown margarine. No sugars in it.


Saffires - - how was the pecan pie?

Saffires - - I adore pecan pie. Did you make one of these? Was it a success?
