3. Stir in chopped pecans and pour mixture into the prepared pie plate.

4. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown and set in the center. Allow to cool before serving.

Cooking tips

  • For a crunchier crust, use a pre-made pie crust instead of greasing the plate.
  • If you like your pies sweeter, add an extra 1/4 cup of sugar to the mixture.
  • You can also add some cinnamon or nutmeg for an extra kick of flavor.
  • For a richer flavor, you can add 1/4 cup of bourbon or whiskey to the mixture.
  • If you want to make a healthier version, use brown sugar instead of white sugar and replace the butter with coconut oil.
  • You can also top your pie with some whipped cream or ice cream for an extra special treat!
  • Finally, if you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some other nuts like walnuts or almonds to the mixture.

Serving Suggestions

This Pecan Pie is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. You can also serve it as an after-dinner treat with some coffee or tea. Enjoy!
