Cook's Notes

This pie uses the same crust as our Brown-Sugar Buttermilk Pie recipe. If you want to make both pies, prepare a double batch of dough, dividing it into 2 disks before chilling overnight or freezing up to 3 months.

    I've made this pecan pie recipe every year since I discovered it a decade ago. It is always a hit. I use Brandy Extract to substitute Brandy Liqueur. The perfect caramel-nut texture of the center is complimented by the layer of pecans across the surface. Sometimes the top gets a little to dark during cooking, so I watch it closely during baking and use foil as necessary to maintain an even light brown surface.
