Perfect Pecan Pie

I don't know about you, but for the longest time I was intimidated by pecan pie. For some reason I had it stuck in my head that it was not an easy pie to make. I have to admit, I was mistaken. :) Perfect Pecan Pie is just as easy as any other pie you bake. I like to think it is even on the "easy" end of the spectrum.

Not only is this Perfect Pecan Pie fairly easy to make, it is insanely delicious as well! The only complaint I have ever gotten from this pie is that it has nuts in it. That came from my nutty, but not nut lover, sister-in-law. :)

The first time I made Perfect Pecan Pie it disappeared so quickly I had to make it 3 times that week! I will blame all those missing "slivers" on my husband. He may or may not have been home when they disappeared, but I still claim it was all his fault.

1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (9 inch) pie crust (I use my Perfect Pie Crust - perfect for Perfect Pecan Pie!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy, and stir in melted butter. Stir in the brown sugar, white sugar and the flour; mix well. Last add the milk, vanilla and nuts. Pour into an unbaked 9-in pie shell. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes at 400 degrees, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until done.

  1. Oh how your comment made me smile. I think next week we'll finally be in sync with one another. I'm a "sliver" person myself and am always amazed at how quickly something seems to disappear that way.


Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment - I would love to hear from you.
