Classic Pecan Pie
This classic pie combines eggs, corn syrup, vanilla, lots of pecans, and is baked to a burnished golden brown.
Chef John's recipe for pecan pie has the perfect blend of nuts and sticky toffee filling with a wonderfully crisp crust.
Lots of sugar, dark corn syrup and pecans come together with other delicious ingredients to create the quintessential pecan pie. Everything is stirred together in one bowl, poured into a prepared crust, and baked until this sweet pie is brown and slightly puffed.
Pecan pie makes a deliciously decadent dessert. Keep it classic, or find a version at Allrecipes that suits your mood, like chocolate or bourbon!
Ok, I made my first pecan pie ever about 6 weeks ago at Thanksgiving. I loved it...but being my first time, I felt I should try out other recipes. Comparatively, this recipe is nearly identical to my first one, with just a few variations to the measurements and also using entirely light Karo (mine used half dark) and also using gran sugar instead of brown. Flavor and texturally speaking it was about the same. BUT!!!!! The simplest step ever was missing from this recipe -- IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS PIE...*please*, I implore you, toast the pecans first!! Nothing to it, put them all into a non-stick skillet over med heat...about 6 minutes total, and tossing if necessary to prevent burning. This is such a critical, flavor-enhancing step and it makes all the difference in the world. I promise. Happy cooking....
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this pie! I have been making this ever since I began hosting Thanksgiving, which is about 9 years ago. This really could not be simplier to mix up, and the flavor is wonderful (yes, it's supposed to be sweet)! Pecan pie is also VERY rich, so this goes a long way...This is the only pecan pie recipe that I have ever tried, and it's the only one that I will ever use~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
I absolutely love this pie! This was my uncle's "secret" recipe for the longest time. When he finally told us it's the recipe from the Karo syrup bottle, I was floored! Now I can make it myself! :P
Buttery and nutty with a touch a caramel, this caramel pecan pie is full of flavor. You'll love it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or sweet whipped cream.
