Raise your hand if you love pecan pie *raises hand*. Raise your hand if you always thought pecan pie was too complicated to make and therefore always had store-bought pecan pie *raises hand again*. Well, I’m here to tell you that it is A LOT easier than you may think. It’s my favorite Thanksgiving dessert and I’m happy to say that I’ll be making it from scratch from here on out.
All it takes is about an hour of your time and a handful of ingredients, and you’ll have the shining star of the dessert table. When someone asks “who made the pecan pie?”, make sure you’re ready to raise that hand again.
To toast your pecans - arrange them on a baking sheet and toast for 7-10 minutes until browned and fragrant. Once cooled, roughly chop the pecans. Note: you can also put some oil on the pecans and spice as desired with salt, sugar or cinnamon.
