This Honey Pecan Pie recipe was lovingly made by my good friend Joyce. Joyce's Honey Pecan Pie recipe is something I'm always intrigued by. It has never been my favorite dessert, yet every time it's served at a dinner or gathering - I can't help taking one slice! After some digging around on Google, the history of this delectable treat was revealed to me. As it turns out, pecans were an integral part of Native Americans' diets before European settlers migrated over and changed things forever - with their delicious pie recipes included as well!
Pecan Pie is a classic southern delicacy with roots in French culture.
The story begins centuries ago when the Native American tribes first introduced this sweet nut to their European settlers and thus began an amazing culinary journey! There’s some debate as to whether Pecan pie is simply a variation of Chess-Pie made from similar ingredients or something unique - no matter what side you're on, we can all agree that it's delicious! To make one yourself at home, grab your ready-made crust (or try making your own if you have a favorite recipe!) along with these simple ingredients and let baking magic unfold.
Making a pecan pie is no small feat
it takes dedication and patience, but the result is always worth it. The process begins with gathering all the necessary ingredients, such as baking powder, butter, sugar, honey, eggs, corn syrup, and plenty of pecans! After assembling these ingredients, you can start making the crust. This requires combining flour, salt, and cubed butter in a bowl before adding cold water. Once everything is mixed nicely and has formed into a dough ball - it's ready to be placed on an ungreased 9-inch pie plate.
With that process done, the filling can begin to come together. This requires mixing melted butter with sugar and corn syrup in a large bowl before gently stirring the eggs. Adding honey for sweetness provides an exciting flavor that helps balance out the richness of the pecans added next. Once everything is combined well - pour this mixture into your prepared crust and then sprinkle your chopped pecans on top evenly. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for around 45 minutes or until golden brown, and let cool before serving.
The ingredients you'll need to make this pie are as follows:
- A 9-inch, unbaked pastry shell
- Bee Inspired Honey
- Light brown sugar packed
- Vanilla extract
- Pecan pieces or halves
These ingredients come together quickly after a few simple steps, and you will love the result! Once your ingredients are gathered, the next step is making the pie. Of course, it all begins with preheating your oven to 350°F.
