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



  • 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


  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.
