PW’s Pecan Pie

by sunshine on November 18, 2008

Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Nine days and counting!  I ran across this recipe yesterday and had to share.  I will confess, I have never made pecan pie.  I guess it’s safe to say I’ve always been a little intimidated and scared that it wouldn’t come out well.  After seeing Pioneer Woman’s recipe, I thought, now what’s so hard about this?  I’ve made many other things that are much more complicated that this!  I CAN DO THIS!  So, I will be giving it a try!  Thanks, Pioneer Woman!

I thought you would also like this recipe for Sweet Potato Casserole.  I make it each year for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Family gatherings, pot lucks, work Christmas parties, you name it.  This is the go-to dish that I make for it all.  There is NEVER any left over!

Mix sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla together in a bowl. Pour chopped pecans in the bottom of the pie shell. Pour syrup mixture over the top. Bake pie at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, being careful not to burn pecans and crust.

I love Pecan Pie. I have never been able to make it taste good though. (I am still pretty bad at baking. I am working on it though.) I am going to try again this year and try this recipe. It looks so good.

Pecan Pie is one of my favorite desserts, but I've never made it. So, for Thanksgiving, I used this recipe and my pie turned out to be AWESOME! I have enough ingredients left for another one, so I'm making another tomorrow night to eat while we decorate our Christmas Tree. Thanks for this recipe! (at this rate, I'll never lose all this baby-weight…LOL)
