How to Make Pecan Pie
Making a pecan pie is super easy, requires just a few ingredients and no special tools! For this pie, I’m using my go-to, all-butter pie crust recipe. This easy, 4 ingredient recipe comes together in no time! I recommend making the pie crust at least an hour before the filling and allow it to chill in the fridge. You can also make it the day before and keep it refrigerated. I have a separate video recipe for the crust; watch it for more details! If you’re in a pinch of time, premade store bought pie crust will also work well!
No Corn Syrup Recipe!
Next, it’s the filling but this version is made without corn syrup! I almost never use corn syrup for baking so when I went to make this pecan pie, I researched for a good substitute. Sally from Sally’s Baking Addiction recommended maple syrup and I had to try. Maple syrup by itself isn’t thick enough to hold the filling together so a little flour is added to help thicken the filling. The maple syrup is the perfect replacement and it also adds tons of flavor! Make sure to use REAL maple syrup – most pancake syrups sold in stores have no real syrup and are actually corn syrup. Look for the good stuff! This bourbon barrel aged syrup is my all-time favorite (Amazon affiliate link)!
To add more texture to the filling, I also like to use a combination of chopped and halved pecans. For serving this delicious fall dessert, I like to add a simple whipped cream. The fluffy cream is the perfect complement to the rich pie and buttery crust! You can also enjoy this pie recipe a la mode, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This pecan pie recipe is by far the best I’ve ever tried! Make sure to add to your Thanksgiving menu!
