This is what we call a basic pecan pie in KY. To really spiffy it up add a little bourbon and some chocolate chips. yummy
The pecans tasted noticeably buttery (I made sure they were well-coated with butter before adding to the syrup mixture) and the pie as a whole is a bit less sweet than most. In other words...PERFECTION!
Ok so this tasted great! My only recommendation would be to bake the crust only for 3 min, take it out and then pour the batter in. Otherwise, it will seep through the crust and well there won't be much of a crust. Also, do not forget to put a cookie sheet on the bottom because it oozes out. Don't fret if it's done and the center is still a tad liquidy as it cools it hardens. It's best to cook it the night before you eat it. Do not be in a rush to eat this, it needs to set for several hours, until completely cooled.
Great recipe! One of the prettiest pies I have ever baked. Not too sweet and a good consistency. It took the 50 minutes in my oven. I covered the crust with foil until the last 20 minutes. It then had a nice browned crust, not burnt.
I just made this recipe for Thanksgiving and found it very easy to follow and make.It got rave reviews at the table and had everyone fighting over who got the leftovers.
Made this today. It was very good... everyone loved it. The first thing I did was in the morning, I coated the pecans in melted butter and let them sit. They absorbed the butter and tasted great in the pie.
This was my first attempt at pecan pie. We have a friend who owns a pecan orchard, so we had top quality goods to work with. i increased the nut content to 2 cups. It was absolutely incredible! Thank you, Bergy for the perfect end to our Thanksgiving dinner.
One word describes this pie....DELICIOUS!!! Thanks for sharing.
This is how a pecan pie should be! I made it for a charity silent pie auction and the couple that bid and won it called me the next day to tell me how WONDERFUL it was! They are now convinced that I am the "Pie Queen" in Crested Butte, Colorado! Thanks for posting this, Bergy, and for making me look so good!
We liked this at the Thanksgiving table.
