Even though my family served it every year at Thanksgiving, Pecan Pie was something I spent most of my life ignoring. It was just not something I was ever that interested in. But, all that changed when I met the Pie Sisters. These girls taught me that when Pecan Pie is done correctly, it is literally heaven in your mouth. It is sweet, smooth and crunchy all at the same time. It is unbelievable. There are some fancy variations, like our Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie, but it is pretty hard to beat the classic. So give it a try, and this year, you can serve it at your own Thanksgiving. And if you really want to impress guests, serve it like my grandfather does - warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
There are a few techniques you can use to make your crust look pretty in the pie plate. Watch this video for a quick and easy demonstration.
for the crust:
for the filling:
** To test if the pie is done, take a knife and poke it into the top going past the pecans and into the filling. If it is done the filling will be coagulated and somewhat solid, if it is still runny bake for a few more minutes.
