Sinfully Good Southern Pecan Pie

Share Button

After a 10 day whirlwind trip to South Carolina and the Bahamas (on a cruise) I am home and happy to be in my own kitchen! The food we enjoyed while away was amazing and when I was challenged by my Friday Recipe Club to work with pecans, I simply had to head south and come up with a Sinfully Good Southern Pecan Pie recipe.

This recipe has me in my husband’s good books! His very favourite thing in the world is butter tarts and this is like having 1 GIANT butter tart with the extra benefit of the pecans and raisins. I took the easy road by using a pre-made pie crust…don’t hate me, I’m super tired and still ignoring our trip’s laundry so couldn’t justify making a crust.

Begin by preheating your oven to 325°.
Next whisk eggs in a large bowl until they are foamy. Add in the remaining ingredients, omitting the whole pecans and whisk until combined.

Pour mixture into piecrust, and top with the whole pecans.

I filled right to the brim and did have a wee bit of filling left over which I throughly enjoyed on top of a bit of vanilla ice cream.

Now you bake at 325° for 30 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 300° and bake an additional 30 minutes.

If you like your crust crispy as my darling husband does, just leave it in the oven as it cools and it will crisp right up.
