Classic Pecan Pie with Michael's Home Cooking


Classic Pecan Pie is one of the easy pies to make. Most common on holidays, I make this pie anytime of the year. See description for full recipe.
1 pie pastry
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
4 eggs
2 ounces melted butter (1/2 stick)
1 Tablespoon Bourbon or vanilla extract
1 to 1 and 1/2 cups pecans
Heat your sugar and corn syrups at least until the sugar melts, you can go longer and boil for up to 5 minutes.
Cool this sugar mixture for five minutes, then add to your beaten eggs is a slow stream. Once you get around 1/3 of the sugar mixture into your eggs you can pour the rest quickly while still stirring the eggs.
Strain this mixture if desired.
Add your pecans to your cold pie pastry.
Add your sugar/egg mixture to the pie pastry.
Bake 350F for 50 to 60 minutes.
Pie is done once puffed up some and a little jiggly.
Thank you for watching!
