Pecan Pie

RECIPE:  Pecan Pie

This is not healthy, but it is nice and as a celebration or festival treat, who cares.  At least by making it yourself you know what’s in it.


Ingredients

1 unbaked pastry pie crust
2 cups pecan nuts, chopped
1/4 pack unsalted butter (approx 63g)
1 cup demerara sugar
3 eggs
2/3 cup maple syrup


Method

  • Set oven to preheat at 175c
  • Line your pie tin with pastry and back in fridge to stay chilled
  • Chop 2 cups of pecan nuts
  • In a bowl. cream together the butter and some of the sugar as you would for a cake
  • Beat in the eggs
  • Add the balance of sugar and maple syrup and mix well
  • Put all the chopped pecans into crust and level out
  • Pour over butter/sugar/syrup mix
  • Cover with a foil hat and into the oven about half an hour
  • Depending on your oven, another 20 minutes or so without the foil

You can tell it is done when there is just a slight wobble in the middle.
If it takes longer than the 20 minutes you may need to pop the foil back on to prevent burning
