Pecans are traditionally used – but try changing it up with walnuts, cashews, macadamia nuts or a mix of what you have on hand! No corn syrup here! Just a few simple ingredients to make one fancy pie! Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and candied pecans on top!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 to 45 minutes
Pie can be made with any standard baked 9-inch piecrust.
When is it done? Like custard pies, pecan pie should be removed from the oven before the center is completely set. The center will jiggle slightly when dish is gently shaken. Filling will continue to "cook" after it's removed and center will firm up quickly. The knife test: Test for doneness with a thin-bladed knife. If knife is clean when pulled out, the custard is done. If any filling clings to the blade, bake a few minutes longer and test again.
