Pecan Pie

Pin It Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie - golden and so delicious.
I made this Pecan Pie yesterday and it was my first one and came out great. It was so easy too. I used the recipe from Pillsbury Best Holiday Desserts magazine I subscribe to (p.11-12). You gotta try it.

Ingredients:

1 Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust.

1/3 cup packed brown sugar.

1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour.

1 1/4 cups light corn syrup.

1 1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract.

3 large eggs.

1 1/2 cups pecan halves or pieces.

2 tablespoons butter.

Instructions:

Let Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust come to room temperature for 15 minutes and then place into glass pie baking dish and press sides and bottom firmly. Use the edge of a fork around the crust.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Melt butter on stove top or microwave and let it cool. If you use a microwave it will melt in 30 seconds on medium-high setting.

In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, corn syrup, vanilla extract and eggs until well blended.

Using a spatula, stir in pecans and butter and fold together.

Pour into pie shell. Place pie dish onto a baking sheet.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes (mine took 50 minutes) until the filling has puffed up and the pie is golden brown. I started checking mine at the 40 minute mark and kept checking it every 5 minutes until it was done.

Place pie on cooling rack and let it cool completely for 2 hours and then refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours before you serve it.

Enjoy!
