Pecan pie has a long history in the South, and it’s believed to have originated in the early 20th century in the state of Texas. Since then, it’s become a beloved dessert throughout the region and beyond, with many variations and adaptations to suit different tastes and preferences.
To make a classic Southern pecan pie, you’ll need:
– 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
– 1 1/2 cups of pecan halves or pieces
– 3 eggs
– 1 cup of light corn syrup
– 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
– 1/2 cup of brown sugar
– 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 1/4 teaspoon of salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish and crimp the edges. Arrange the pecans evenly in the bottom of the pie crust.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Add the corn syrup, granulated sugar, brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, and salt, and whisk until well combined.
Pour the filling over the pecans in the pie crust, making sure the pecans are evenly distributed. Use a piece of foil or a pie crust shield to cover the edges of the crust and prevent it from over-browning.
Bake the pie for 50-60 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown. The filling should still jiggle slightly in the center when you gently shake the pie.
Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely on a wire rack. Serve at room temperature with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.
Southern pecan pie is a delicious and indulgent dessert that’s perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re celebrating a special event or just want to treat yourself to a sweet and nutty treat, this classic pie is sure to satisfy. So why not give it a try and see for yourself why pecan pie is a beloved Southern tradition?
