pecan pie

never made it before.
non- corn syrup version with honey and maple syrup in place of the corn syrup.
but some recipes use cream, others eggs and one, the ultimate cream, butter in filling.
anyone have a fave method?

I love pecan pie, but I tend to eat the pecans, scrape the goop off the crust and eat the crust.

I love love love apple pies

So I thought, I should put them together.

So I assembled one from a store bought crust, canned apple pie filling, then topped it with pecans.

It was great!

EDIT: I hope someone with real baking skills does this right! If so, let me know how it comes out!

An aunt of mine had a Black Walnut tree in her back yard and she used to make walnut pies that were wonderful. She used the same recipe as pecan pie, but with less-sweet lack walnuts that gave it an ever-so-slight bourbon-ish flavor. My cousin remembers her making it but didn't like it and doesn't know if my aunt modified the basic recipe in any way.

Black walnuts can be tough to get into, so my aunt used my uncle's bench vice to crack them open.

Whole Foods used to make one with rice syrup that was amazing!

You could try substituting ally lose for the sugar. It’s about as sweet, but doesn’t affect blood sugar levels. [en.m.wikipedia.org] Won’t give you that amazing maple flavor, though.

I can sure get onboard with a bourbon pecan pie, with a bourbon caramel sauce.

I love pecans and I love pie.

I learned about pecan pie in the service — delicious!

But I do eat it with a glass or two of ice cold milk.

Another thing pecans are good on is fruitcake.

I love a great fruitcake but it's a little pricey.

The Colin Street Bakery makes wonderful fruitcakes, but their Regular DeLuxe® Fruitcake is pricey at ~$40 shipped.

People love to hate fruitcake, but Colin Street Bakery increases sales by making a Pecan Cake, a fruitcake in pecan clothing.

One of the guys got a Colin Street fruitcake in a care package, and nobody wanted any, but being the Nice Guy that I am, I accepted a piece and it was really good.

Colin Street also does a Deep Dish Pecan Pie, not quite as pricey, but still very good and really very rich.

What is now known as Pecan Pie is quite different from what was traditional in the 19th century. The modern day version traces the recipe to an advertising campaign by Karo Syrup.

The original was more of a custard-style that was more about the pecan flavor and did not have the super-rich filling.


1886 recipe from Harpers Bazaar

2 cup milk
2 cup sugar (light brown is my choice)
6 beaten eggs
2 Tbsp flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1.5 cups of chopped pecans
1 pie crust


Prebake your piecrust

preheat your oven to 350


combine milk, sugar, eggs, flour, salt, pecans in a saucepan and stir to combine. Place over low heat and stir as it thickens (this will take a while, but you are making a custard not scrambling eggs). Once thickened, pour into the pie shell, decorate with unchopped pecans if desired.

bake 30-35 minutes.

Top with meringue, return to oven for 5-10 minutes until the topping is browned

thanks Ombligo. that is closer to what I imagined they originally were. You could easily use some bourbon in that original recipe.

Several years ago I started baking 'spiced' pecans. Tremendously easy with an overwhelmingly positive response. 1 lb pecans, 1/3 cup maple syrup mixed, and whatever spices i decide, mainly cinnamon, chili pepper, then a rotating cast of characters.15-20 minutes in the oven on a baking sheet around 375. thank me later.



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

oh, there'll be bourbon in it.
MIL had the right idea, alcohol in everything cooked, at least a little.

Don't forget vanilla! A little vanilla extract does wonders for a pecan pie...

An NYT food writer tested recipes for Thanksgiving pies and wrote up her findings a few weeks ago. Her pecan pie uses maple syrup and honey (as suggested above), some bourbon, and more pecans/less goo.

Here’s the recipe at the NYT, but she also has a YouTube video of the same which is not behind a paywall.

Haven’t tried this recipe myself, but I should - love love love pecan pie.

Followed a few of her NYT recipes that have been very good.

I work an event near Collins Street, and they are pretty good. For entertainment you ought to Google them, and read about the financial shenanigans that they experienced. A metric s**t ton of embezzlement.

Yup, extra warm pecan pie and vanilla ice cream added 20 pounds to my midsection in the mid-90s. Now I stay far away from it.

I love single-serving pies! Drop a pint of vanilla ice cream in the middle of that warm pie and you’ll have the perfect desert for your Thanksgiving dinner.
