Pecan pies.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I am new to all the internet cooking sites and am reading a lot of different ways of doing things.  Why would you bake the crust first and pre cook the filling on a pecan pie.  Does it change the texture.  I have never done either.  If it makes for a better pie , well I would like to hear what you think before I waste more time than necessary for Thanksgiving with 30 coming for dinner and a lot of cooking going on. Maybe a trial for another day.

I've never precook end either the cust or filling of a pecan pie. I can imagine prevailing crust as a way to ensure that the bottom is crisp, but...

I parbake the crust for about 10 minutes then cook the pies low, like 300 or maybe 325. This ensures the egg can set without overlooking which causes seepage which in turn can make your crust soggy

This is the best.  This is how my wife, who is better than a grandmother she is a great grandmother, makes it.  It is easy and tastes wonderful.  For a deep dish you may want to increase it by 1/3.  good luck and remember a Pe Can is what we had under our beds when we were kids.

 

Pecan Pie

 

3 eggs
3/4 cup brown sugarPe
1/2 cup Red Karo
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans
1 pinch salt
1/2 stick butter, melted

 


Mix and bake in uncooked pie crust 325 ° for 35 minutes or until firm.

These are great tips!

Also remember that when done this type of pie filling will still jiggle a bit in the middle (like a cheesecake).

If you try the " bake until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean" test the pecans will most likely be burned to a crisp.

If you have an accurate oven temp (use a few oven thermometers scattered in 2 or 3 zones) and follow your recipe accurately you can pull the pie at the allotted time given in instructions.
