With a buttery crust and a filling that only takes 10 minutes to make, this Classic Pecan Pie Recipe is going to be your new favorite holiday tradition  Best Pecan Pie Recipe

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.

What Pecans Should You Use For A Classic Pecan Pie?

I like to use a mixture of chopped pecans and pecan halves. I think the mixture gives the pie the best texture.

Can I Use Store-Bought Pie Dough?

Yes, you can. If you choose to use a pre-made crust, just make sure the pie dough is no longer completely frozen when you add the pecans and filling.

CLASSIC PECAN PIE

No ratings yet

Ingredients
  

CRUST

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2/3 cup + tbs cold unsalted butter (cut into cubes)
  • 7 tablespoons cold milk

PIE FILLING

  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup pecan halves

Instructions
 

For the crust:

  • Combine flour, salt and sugar with a light whisk.
  • Add the shortening. With a dough blender or your hands work the cold butter cubes into the dry ingredients until it's in pea-size pieces.
  • Add cold water and milk 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and the dough comes together.
  • Gather dough into a ball and then shape it into a flattened round on a floured surface.
  • Roll pie crust into a circle 2 inches larger than the upside down pie plate.
  • Fold crust into fourths and place into pie plate. Unfold and ease into plate.
  • Using kitchen shears, trim dough to a 1-inch overhang and create desired decorative edge.
  • Once you have finished the crust, use a fork to poke a few holes into the bottom.
  • Use the back of the fork to press the edges of the crust up against the side of the pie plate.

For the filling:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together butter, corn syrup, sugar, vanilla and salt until combined.
  • Once combined, add the eggs. Whisk until they are fully blended with the mixture. (It should be a solid pale yellow color with no specks of dark yellow yolk)
  • Add maple syrup and whisk until incorporated.
  • In the bottom of the crust spread the pecans evenly.
  • Pour mixture over pecans.
  • Place pie on a standard cookie sheet and bake for 50-65 minutes or until filling is coagulated and let cool completely before cutting.

Notes

** 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.

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.

If you think you are undercharging - you probably are. 😬 The best thing you can do for your business right now (especially with all this inflation going on) is to make SURE your prices are helping you, not hurting you.

And if you are not sure how to do that, I highly recommend using The Pricing Calculator. It makes pricing easy.

It tells you exactly what you need to charge for all your goods and services.

No more uncertainty.
No more complicated math.
Just the right prices every single time.

And the best part is, you never have to worry about undercharging again.

Things change. So should your prices! You should be reevaluating your prices 1-2 times a year just to make sure you are still on the right track. And if you have not raised your prices in a while...it’s time.

🤷‍♀️ But how much should you raise them?

Here are some options:
1. Pick a random number and just got with it.
2. Do a tiny bump up and hope that inflation is not killing your business.
3. Use my Pricing Calculator - it will tell you exactly how much you should be charing for all your goods and services (while making sure you are still making money).

If the Pricing Calculator sounds like something that would be helpful for you and your business, join the waitlist in my bio.

That way I can notify you as soon as it is released next week (and you can get access to a sweet discount)!

I can’t wait for you guys to use this magic calculator!

Pie Season is here! If you are looking to upgrade your pie game, the crust is a great way to start! You can find the recipe in my blog here: sprinklesforbreakfast.com/decorative-pie-crust-tutorial

Also, these photos are from one of my earliest blog posts (before my mom lost her battle to cancer). The photos definitely could use an upgrade, as I was just learning how to take food photos. But my mom is the hand model - and I just can’t bring myself to redo them.

It’s so crazy how a photo of some fingers pinching a pie crust can make me so happy and ugly cry at the same time.

Grief is such a strange thing. It comes in so many different shapes and sizes and colors. It shows up for big life events, and it shows up on a random Tuesday when you are diving home from the market and you go to call them and realize they are not there.

Or when you are sitting on your couch posting about pie on Instagram...although that one feels pretty specific.

I know there is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. And everyone has to find their own way to heal.

But I just wanted to say this:

To anyone who has ever experienced loss in any way - I am so so sorry. And while I know words can’t fix it, I just wanted you to know you are not alone❤️
