My husband is the outdoor type, so the thought of being cooped up inside all winter long is not to his liking. I, on the other hand, embrace the winter season. Bring on the soft sweaters, fuzzy boots, and warm coats, I’m all in!

Baking is also more fun during the cooler weather. Turning on the oven warms the house with the scent of baked goods. Uhh, I get excited just thinking about it.

Now I’m going to start by saying pecan pie is not for the weak. I mean it is an utterly sweet rich indulgence. The filling is eggs, sugar and more sugar (which is what corn syrup basically is). However, calories aside, nothing beats a good old-fashioned pecan pie. The flaky pie crust with the toasty pecans. The gooey center with its taste of sweet brown sugar, spicy molasses and creamy vanilla. It’s a southern classic at its best.

I went with the tried and true Karo Syrup Pecan Pie recipe. It’s simple with all the right flavors, and no fancy ingredients. I used my own 4-ingredient flaky pie crust. It’s what I know and it has never failed me.

Description

This classic pecan pie recipe is rich and sinfully sweet. It’s packed with flavors of caramelized pecans, molasses and vanilla.


Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups (250g) all-purpose flour, twice sifted
  • ½ tsp (2.5g) salt
  • ½ cup (125ml) vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup (62ml) milk

Pecan filling

  • 1 cup (200g) sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) melted butter
  • 1 cup (250ml) light or dark corn syrup
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp (10ml) vanilla extract
  • 1&1/2 cups (170g) pecans (chopped or halves)

Chocolate whipped cream

  • 1 cup (250ml) whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup (62ml) chocolate sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and arrange a rack in the lower third of the oven. Set aside a 9″ pie plate.
  2. Sift the flour twice, then whisk in the salt and create a well in the center.
  3. Pour in the oil, then milk and stir everything together. If the dough seems too dry, add 1-2 tbsp of milk.
  4. Once the dough starts to form, finish working it by gently kneading it on a sheet of wax paper.
  5. Roll out between 2 sheets of wax paper. Fit the crust onto your pie plate and finish edges with a spoon.
  6. Whisk together the sugar, butter, corn syrup, eggs and vanilla. Stir in the pecan to coat and pour into pie crust.
  7. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until the center reaches 200F. You can also test by lightly tapping the center surface of the pie – it should spring back when done. Loosely cover the pie with foil after 40 minutes to prevent the crust from over browning. Let cool on a wire rack for 2 hours before serving.

To prepare the whipped cream

  1. Beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Mix in the chocolate sauce until blended. Serve with each slice of pie.
