Football & Food Pt. 2
So I mentioned in my Football & Food post that Sunday I had made a pecan pie. Oh boy it was perfection. I used to use the basic pecan pie that everybody and their mama knows - the one with Karo Corn Syrup. But Trisha Yearwood had me sold when she put a stick of butter into hers. So I gave it a shot and oh my goodness it was perfection!
Seriously though, you have to make this pie. Click here to get her recipe.
It's honestly a one bowl which is what I love the most.
Whisk eggs and both sugars together, then the butter.
Pour into your shell and bake!
My pie took a little longer than 55 minutes to bake. You really want to make sure that the center is jiggly, the rest should be firm. Picture a big grapefruit in the center of your pie - that part can be jiggly but the rest needs to be set before you pull it out of the oven.
For the crust I used my go to Cuisinart pie crust recipe, but this could have easily been made with a store-bought crust in a pinch. I recommend Pillsbury or Marie Calenders frozen Crust.
