Easy Pecan Pie
You can’t go wrong with homemade pecan pie. Learn how to make pecan pie by pouring the six-ingredient filling into a premade frozen pie crust and baking for a rich seasonal treat that’s about to become your new go-to dessert.
- 1 cup Golden Syrup or Honey
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 cup sugar (better brown sugar)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1–1/2 cups chopped pecans
- 1 unbaked OR frozen deep-dish pie crust
Step One: Pie Crust
Here’s one of those times when you can go with ready-made. Trust us, the filling of this pie is the start of the show, so it doesn’t matter too much what kind of crust you use!
Press one dough into a pie pan. Trim off any excess and crimp the edges.
Step Two: Pecan Pie Filling
The most important thing about the pecan pie filling is that you don’t want to overmix it. The filling is stirred with a fork just until combined. All of the ingredients into the bowl, combine with a fork and pour into the crust. Super easy!
Step Three: Fill the Pie Crust
The pecan pie filling is a thick soupy, sugary filling and it’s hard to imagine it turning out amazing when you see it like this. But just trust the process and pour the filling into your pie crust.
If you want a decorative top on the pie you’ll have to add pecan halves. After pouring the pecan pie filling into the pie crust, top the pie with pecan halves in a decorative pattern of your choice.
Step Four: Make a Foil Ring
Make a ring of foil and completely cover the edge of the pie crust.
Step Five: Bake the Easy Pecan Pie
Bake the pie for 40 minutes, remove the foil ring and then bake it for an additional 10-15 minutes, for a total of 50-60 minutes.
Cool for at least 2 hours on a wire rack before serving.
You can enjoy your pie with ice cream on top, whipped cream, or on its own.
