  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 unbaked pie crust (store-bought or homemade)

For the Pie Crust:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 2-4 tablespoons ice water


  1. Prepare the Pie Crust: a. In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, and granulated sugar. Pulse a few times to mix. b. Add the chilled butter cubes and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. c. Gradually add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and pulse until the dough just comes together. Be cautious not to overmix. d. Turn the dough onto a floured surface, gently shape it into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  3. Prepare the Pecan Filling: In a medium-sized bowl, combine chopped pecans, sugar, corn syrup, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt. Mix until well combined.

  4. Roll Out the Pie Crust: a. On a floured surface, roll out the pie crust to fit a 9-inch pie dish. b. Carefully transfer the pie crust to the pie dish, gently pressing it into the bottom and sides. Trim any excess dough and crimp the edges.

  5. Fill the Pie Shell: Spread the pecan filling evenly into the prepared pie crust.

  6. Bake the Pie: Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the filling is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the pie to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing and serving. Serve at room temperature or slightly warmed, and enjoy the wonderful flavors of autumn in each bite.

  8. Optional: Garnish and Serve: Garnish the pie with a dollop of whipped cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar for an extra festive touch.
