Ultimate Pecan Pie Recipe - Best Pecan Pie Recipe Ever

This is my first attempt in making and eating a pecan pie. I am telling you, this is a must try pie atleast once in a life time. it is too good to resist. I am sure everyone who eats this will love it for sure.

I am in a whole thanskgiving mood and cooking up a storm for this thanksgiving. I am trying to cover as much recipe as i can and this was my first recipe on the list. I ordered pecans from amazon and made this as well a pecan bar too. Both were irresistable.

Recipes for Thanksgiving:
Cranberry Sauce
Turkey Gravy
Chicken and Leek PIe
Pear Cherry Crumble
Mango Crumble
Apple Pie
Pineapple Pie
Banoffee Pie
Apple Galette
Apple Crumble

This recipe calls for corn syrup, if you dont have that you could use liquid glucose as well. This is a important ingredient because it makes the pecan pie set and makes it sliceable.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

Preparation Time : 15 mins

Baking Time : 50 to 60 mins
Makes: One 9 Inch Pie
Serves - 8 to 9 slices
Recipe Source: Gimmesomeoven


Basic Shortcrust Pastry - 1 batch (RECIPE HERE)

For Filling:

Butter - 1/2 cup / 100 grams
Sugar - 1 cup
Corn Syrup or Liquid Glucose - 1 cup
Salt - 1 tsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Egg - 4
Pecans - 2 cup
Cinnamon Powder - 1/2 tsp

(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)
(I halved the recipe)


Preheat oven to 180 degree C / 350 degree F.

Start by making the pie crust and chill it for atleast 30 mins. Now roll it between two sheets of plastic wrap and line a pie plate, slice of the excess and pop this in fridge till needed.

Now in a sauce pan, take butter and melt it down. Now add all ingredients except pecans and set aside.

Take the pie plate and sprinkle with pecans, pour the filling in it and top with whole pecans if needed.

Bake this for 50 to 60 mins or untill it is golden and done

Remove it and set aside for 30 mins to cool down.

Now pop it in fridge for a good 2 hours before slicing.

Slice and serve.

  1. This looks lovely! Pecan Pie is one of my favorites and I have been intending to make it. Can you please share where did you get the pecans from? I looked up at Amazon and they were pretty expensive out there!

    1. I wanted to try this so bad. I bought it from amazon. Yes it is little expensive
