Pecan Pie Ingredients
1 pkt Sweet Short Crust Pastry
150ml Maple Syrup
175g Brown Sugar
2 drops Vanilla Extract
You can make your own pastry should you wish but I cheat and buy ready made. My reasoning is why bother when shop bought is just as good. However if you want to be a pureist please look on line for a pastry recipe.
Pre heat oven 180oC 350oF or gas Mark 4
Roll out pastry with care to about 3mm thick and place in pie dish.
Prick base of pastry and cook blind for approx 20 minutes until pastry has begun to cook make sure base is not sticky before placing in filling.
|To cook blind place grease proof paper over flan base and add baking beans or some weight to keep pastry in place when cooking Remove baking beans and just allow 2 minutes of further cooking time to allow base to cook|
Allow mixture to cool slightly before adding beaten eggs gradually
Once eggs are mixed in then add pecans. leave a few pecans out of mixture to arrange on top of pie as seen in picture below
Place in oven and cook for approximately 40minutesd checking to ensure it does not over cook.
Can be eaten hot or cold, lovely on its own or with cream or ice cream.
