About Pecan Pie Recipe

When it comes to making Pies, I’ve always felt that a Pecan Pie is hard.  I don’t know why, but just my assumption.  Well let me tell you, I was WRONG!  Making a Pecan Pie is so easy.  It literally comes together in about 90 seconds ready to be baked.  That’s it!  Don’t let this holiday favorite pie scare you.  Jump in and make on.  Pecan Pies are so good!

When I think of a Pecan Pie, I think of my father or grandfather.  I think of an older generation as they just seem to appreciate this more mature type of pie I suppose.  And then I had a piece and realized that the older generation was holding out on us all.  They didn’t want to share this amazing pie.  The tradition continues as I allow my boys to pass this by.  That’s okay, more for me!

There are many Pecan Pie Recipes, each with a little variation.  I like this simple recipe because it has so few ingredients and it can be thrown together in minutes and then baked.  Sometime simple saves the day, right? 

Holiday Pies:

It seems you can never bake just one pie, you always need one or two more!  I try to balance my pies with other great options that people like.  Besides Pecan Pie, we also love a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Pie.  It’s easy to make and a great freezer pie.  Meaning you can make this ahead of time and pull out to thaw before you need it.  

Another Pie that is beyond simple is a Chocolate Symphony Pie that uses only 3 ingredients.  WOW.  This is a pie my boys learned how to make when they were younger.  This is also a freezer pie and can be made early and kept frozen.  

What is a Pecan Pie?

Pecan Pie is a pie made with Pecans, a nut.  It typically also has sugar, corn syrup and eggs.  It’s a holiday favorite Pie for many and just plain good served with vanilla ice cream.

How to make Pecan Pie?

A Pecan Pie is baked about 35 minutes.  To check for doneness, insert a knife into the center.  Knife should come out clean and the center should be solid.  The internal temperature of a Pecan Pie should be about 200 degrees.

Should I refrigerate my Pecan Pie?

Its always great to be cautious with foods.   Bacteria can grow between 40 degrees F and 140 Degrees F.  It’s important to keep your pie in the refrigerator after it has cooled to not allow any bacteria to grow.  

Is Pecan Pie Gluten Free?

Pecan Pie CAN BE Gluten Free.  You would need to use a Gluten Free Pie Crust or make on from scratch.  The remaining ingredients are gluten free.
