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!!

Pecan Pie

 

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! 

This delicious and easy pecan pie recipe is so simple that even a beginner can bake it! It makes the perfect Thanksgiving dessert, or go-to pie for any time of year.

Heavenly Peanut Butter Chocolate Bon Bons

Peanut Butter Chocolate Bon Bons I think whoever decided that Peanut Butter and Chocolate together should win the lottery! Like for real, it is so perfect!!!! I think at times I could live off of these Peanut Butter Chocolate Bon Bons, they are so good, and when I take them to family gatherings everyone gobbles them right up! I haven’t made them for awhile and I think my sister-in-law, Brandi, was going through withdrawls like me!

I decided for Easter along with my Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries, I would make an oldie, but goodie!! They are pretty easy to make, they just take a bit of time, since you form them into little balls and then dip them in the chocolate! Even though they are a little work, they are SO worth it!!

Ingredients: 

2 Cups Peanut Butter (I use crunchy but you can choose any)
3/4 cup butter (melted)
4 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
3 Cups Rice Krispies
1 package of Chocolate Almond Bark

How to Make:

I use my KitchenAid Mixer, I just put the melted butter and peanut butter in, and turn on low. Allow the melted butter to soften the peanut butter some, and then slowly add in the powdered sugar. Once it is nice and mixed, form into small balls and sit on wax paper.

Peanut Butter Bon Bons Then melt your chocolate in the microwave or stove, whichever way you prefer. Then Dip the ball in one at a time (if you do more than one they start to melt in chocolate) and cover the entire bon bon. I use a fork to roll the peanut butter balls around. Then set the bon bon back on wax paper and allow to harden.

Then just store in an air tight container! These are so good, they might go quick if you love chocolate the way we do!!!

If you don’t really like nuts, I suggest using creamy peanut butter instead of crunchy! I just use the crunchy for one more dimension of flavor!
