Hands-down my favorite pie!
If I had to choose my absolute most favorite pie in the world – I would have to say it is this one right here. I love pie, paired with a good strong cup of coffee. I love all kinds of pie. In fact, I doubt there are many pies out there that I don’t like. But my favorite has got to be the good ole Pecan Pie. Peach Pie is a very close second.
Easy as Pie, Pecan Pie Recipe
1 (9-inch) frozen pie crust, or make your own
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans (or pecan halves)
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
3 tbsp. salted butter, melted
1 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Take frozen pie crust out of the freezer and place it on a baking sheet while preparing the filling. Or, if you are using the
perfect pie crust for the impatient baker, prepare the crust, prick it with a few holes using a fork, and then stick it in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.

Or, if you are using the pie crust Perfect Pie Crust, prepare the crust, prick it with a few holes using a fork, and then stick it in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.
In a medium bowl, whisk together beaten eggs, sugar, melted butter, corn syrup, ground cinnamon and vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.
Place the pecans into the bottom of your pie crust.
Then pour the filling on top of the pecans.
Bake for about 45-50 minutes.
Around the 20 minute mark, you may want to add some aluminum foil around the edges of
your pie crust to keep it from getting too browned.
Oven times do vary, but basically, the middle of the pie should be set when done (not overly jiggly) and the center will puff up a bit.
