Easy Pecan Pie

 

I love to make Pecan Pies! They are such a delicious creation and I love the ooey-gooey filling they have. To me no other pie can compare to the fabulous taste of a Pecan Pie :-)! I normally get asked to make my Pecan Pie for family gathering for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone says how hard they are to make, and I am not sure if they have a hard recipe or what.. because I find they are simple to make!!

This recipe I have had for years, I can’t remember when I found it! I am pretty sure it was in one of my parent’s old recipe books! Their is no stove-top needed like some recipes call for! This is an easy pecan pie recipe, you pretty much dump all the ingredients in together, stir, then pour and pan and bake!! 

I am all about easy recipes that taste like they would take hours to bake!! This year for Thanksgiving I made two, one for us and then I gave one to my sister for her to take out and share with her husband’s side of the family dinner! She ended up texting that she loved the recipe!!!

So enough of this chitter-chatter and on to the recipe… shall we?!?

Pecan Pie

Super Easy Pecan Pie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup (I use the light colored one)
  • 2 tbs melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup pecan halves
  • 1 deep dish pie crust (or you can choose to make own crust, just make sure it is a deep pan)

Instructions

  1. First off preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Then I tossed the eggs into my KitchenAid and turned on low, once they were somewhat beat I added in the sugar and the corn syrup.
  3. Once that is well incorporated add in the vanilla and salt and butter. Once that is well mixed I turn the mixer off. Toss in the nuts and stir with a spatula, so they don’t get too beat up from the blender.
  4. Pour the mix into your pie crust, and I always put aluminum foil around the crust, that way it doesn’t over-cook.
  5. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes. Then you will want to reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for 35-40 minutes.
  6. You will want the pie to look nice golden brown and slightly puffy. Then cool on a cooling wrack and then wrap it up. I always put ours in the fridge until we are ready to eat it.

As you can see from the recipe, it is truly easy. When you pour out the mix into the pie pan, the nuts spread themselves over the pie. I always thought you would have to hand place them, but they do it all themselves!!

If you’re lucky enough to have a source of fresh pecans still in the shell (like we did when my sister lived in Austin), you will still have to shell them, which can be hard work! A nut cracker can make that a lot easier and quicker. It protects you from beat-up fingers too. This is a pretty cool option from NewFrog:

What is your favorite pie? I would say for me Pecan Pie and Cherry are pretty close tied for first place!! Also if you choose to make this pie, I would love for you to come back and share your thoughts on the recipe!!

Happy Baking!

I Am Obsessed With These Monster Cookies!

Monster Cookies

I had no idea about Monster Cookies until a few months back, I was over seeing my nieces and sister, and she had made some and asked if I wanted one. I was a little hesitant on if I would like them or not! I have been seriously missing out, these cookies are so good! They are a nice twist to a cookie, and I love the M&M’s and chocolate chips mixed in the cookies!

I had told myself if I passed my glucose tolerance test for gestational diabetes, I would make some to celebrate! Haha, living on the wild side, I know! I passed with flying colors, so I kept my word and whipped these up! I gave some to my sister, as a thank you for introducing them to me, and then I put the rest in the freezer, so when I feel like a cookie I can pull one or two out and enjoy it!

If you have never had a monster cookie, they are really good. They have oatmeal, peanut butter, M&M’s, and chocolate chips in them. It is a fun variety of flavors mixed together, which makes them so good, in my opinion.

Monster Cookies

Ingredients: 

2 Cups All Purpose Flour

1 1/2 cups Quick Oats

1 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar

1/2 Cup Peanut Butter (Feel free to use creamy or crunchy, whichever you prefer)

1 Egg

1 Egg Yolk

3/4 Cup Softened Butter (I prefer butter over margarine)

1 tsp vanilla

1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips

1 Cup M&M’s + Some extra for topping them

How to Make: 

1. First preheat oven to 350 degrees. Next take a small bowl, combined the flour, oats, and baking soda and salt together and set aside.

2. Then in my KitchenAid Stand Mixer (you can use a hand mixer or spatula) I added the softened butter and peanut butter together. I mixed them till they were pretty smooth.

3. Next I added in the brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Once that was well incorporated, I added in the whole egg and the egg yolk and vanilla.

4. Next I slowly added the flour and oat mixture, until well combined.

5. Then with a spatula I folded in the chocolate chips and M&M’s.

6. Then I put the dough into balls and placed on greased cookie sheet. I then took some extra M&M’s I had and placed a few on top of each cookie, just to add some dimension to the cookies. That is optional, you don’t have to do this part.

7. Bake cookies for around 8-10 minutes or until they are light brown. If you prefer a softer cookie bake less, or a crunchier cookie bake a little longer. Just go with how you normally prefer your cookies.

Note: Depending on where you live and the altitude your baking time could vary. Or you can adjust the temperature, this is what works for me where I live. 

Monster Cookies

These are pretty easy to make and really amazing. Best of all they freeze great, so if you are like me, eat them whenever you get a craving, just set a few out and let thaw for a little bit then enjoy!

What is your favorite kind of cookie?!
