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:
Chicken and Leek PIe
Pear Cherry 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.
