My family got some fresh pecans and they asked me if I knew how to make a pecan pie. I said I never have made nor tasted one but… “Challenge Accepted!!!”
Yes, I did it on a Tuesday, I couldn’t even wait for the week-end because every day is a good day to have some pie. 😛 It turned out delicious according to the experts like my husband, my brother in law and his girlfriend and above all, my mother in law that is a queen of cooking!
Anyways, since some of my friends asked me to write the recipe and since I get more “likes” on Facebook on photos of food than deep inspirational writings according to me, below is the recipe. Now, I’m a great cook, I may share other secret recipes with you! Hahaha, so much for being humble!
I combined two recipes together after I looked at many of them. 🙂
For the crust:
Here comes the fun part of making the rest!
I put one cup brown sugar instead of white because I don’t like very sweet and I prefer brown more. I think next time I’ll put less syrup too or try maple syrup. But It was my first time and I didn’t want to experiment much.
For Vanilla, you can use any type.
I like the websites above because they tell you step by step what to do.
And…. drum roll please!!!!!
Here is mine!
For all my Albanian friends, even if you can’t find pecans, this will be just fine with walnuts as well. Also, instead of syrup, honey or melted sugar will work. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this experience as much as I did! For me it was “LEGEND…wait for it…DARY”
