Pecan Pie

I really enjoy cooking and love seeing people enjoy the food I have cooked, I love throwing dinner parties because it means I have a reason to spend my whole day in the kitchen cooking food!

Being a pecan lover I decided to try my hand at a Pecan Pie. IT WAS SO GOOD. I don’t mean to blow my own trumpet but the pie was delicious and I enjoyed the compliments from our dinner guests.

You will need to do the following to make shortcrust pastry:

  1. Mix 110g butter with 225g plain flour until crumb like
  2. Add 1 egg and 80g sugar and mix until a pastry like dough is formed, chill in the fridge for around 30 minutes
  3. Roll the pastry onto a greased pie dish, cover with greaseproof paper and baking beads, bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes
  4. Remove from the oven, remove the baking beads and bake for another 5 minutes
  5. Remove from the oven and leave the pastry base to cool whilst you make the filling
For the Filling:
  1. Melt 110g butter with 120g golden syrup and 225g soft light brown sugar (this smells amazing as it melts)
  2. Break 100g dark chocolate into chunks and put at the bottom of your pie base
  3. Roughly break 230g pecans and add put in your pie base
  4. Beat 3 eggs and then add this to the golden syrup/butter/sugar melted mix and beat
  5. Pour this over the base with the pecans and chocolate in
  6. Bake at 170 degrees for 30 minutes, then turn the oven down to 140 degrees and bake for another 20 minutes, the pie will looked cooked but should have a slight wobble in the middle
  7. Allow to cool and eat and enjoy!
