Cooking recipes - How to Pecan pie?

If you have ever celebrated Thanksgiving in the USA, you have probably seen this Pecan Pie on the table and, I hope for you, you have tasted and enjoyed it, because it is a really good and tasty pie, although very sweet...



  • 3 eggs
  • 80g brown sugar
  • 25g butter
  • 120g finely chopped pecans
  • 230g crushed pecans
  • A few pecans for decoration
  • 200ml maple syrup


  • 125g butter at room temperature
  • 250g flour
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of fine salt
  • A ready-made shortbread pastry (if you don't have the time)


  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Chantilly cream

Steps for making Pecan pie:


  1. Mix all the flour, icing sugar and salt in a large container.
  2. Cut the butter into cubes and add it to the flour and sugar mixture.
  3. Use your fingers to give your dough a sandy texture (Sanding)
  4. When your dough starts to feel sandy, add the egg and continue to work your dough by hand until it is smooth.
  5. On your floured work surface, roll out your sanded dough enough to place it in your tart tin, on a sheet of baking paper.
  6. Place your pastry in the fridge for 30 minutes.


  1. Preheat your tower to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Melt your butter and finely chop your pecans.
  3. Mix the eggs, sugar, melted butter, maple syrup and chopped pecans.
  4. Crush (break into small pieces) the pecans and spread them on your shortcrust pastry before pouring the filling on top.
  5. Add the remaining pecans for decoration and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
  6. After 30 minutes, take your pie out and cover it with aluminium foil so that your pie keeps a nice golden colour. Return to the oven for 30 minutes. Check after 15/20 minutes if it is not already cooked, as some ovens are more powerful than others.) To know if your tart is cooked, the filling should be firm.
  7. Leave to cool for an hour or so before enjoying your pecan pie with whipped cream and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
