Pecan pie is a southern tradition. We make these things for every occasion from Christmas to summer cookouts. If you don’t have one, you really do need a great pecan pie recipe and I have just the one for you.
Not only is this one scrumptious, it’s pretty easy to bake. And, you don’t have to know how to make a great homemade pie crust. You can use one that you find in the store.
You’ll need about 10 minutes to get this pie ready for the oven and then it has to bake for almost an hour. If you have ever made pecan pie before, you have probably used corn syrup as the base.
This one uses sugar and honey which gives it a really unique and really delicious flavor. Top it off with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream and your family will love it! If you don’t happen to have any whipped cream on hand, just follow this quick and easy recipe for homemade whipped cream.
Pecan pie is one of my favorites and there are so many ways that you can make this one unique. Add a few chocolate chips for a great twist on this southern classic. Or, just follow the recipe completely.
