How to make it

  • 1-In a food processor, place the flour, salt, and sugar and process until combined. Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal . Pour 1/8 cup (30 ml) water in a slow, steady stream, through the feed tube until the dough just holds together when pinched. If necessary, add more water. Do not process more than 1 minute.
  • Turn the dough onto your work surface and gather into a ball. Flatten into a disk, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to one hour before using.
  • After the dough has chilled sufficiently, place on a lightly floured surface, and roll into a 13 inch (33 cm) circle.Fold the dough in half and gently transfer to a 9 inch (23 cm) pie pan. Brush off any excess flour and tuck the overhanging pastry under itself. Use a fork to make a decorative border or else crimp the edges using your fingers. Chill covered for about 30 minutes before pouring in the filling.
  • For filling:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in heavy medium saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring often. Boil 1 minute. Stir in nuts and cream. Boil until mixture thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Pour hot filling into crust. Using spoon, evenly distribute nuts. Bake until filling bubbles all over, about 10 minutes. Transfer pie to rack and cool.
  • Serve warm or cold.

    I made this last week and just wanted to eat it all myself. Unfortuneately, I am a small girl and if I did that with all your recipes I would not be small anymore. But it was fun making it and tasting it. I am caregiver for my parents and disabled husband and as Mamma explained because of their ailments and not getting around, they always look forward to the next meal so I do my best to give them a great variety of food served in a "restaurant-like" way. I want the three of them to have as much happiness as I can provide. Gotta run and get the ribs on the BBQ....Thanks again!

    A thing of beauty! And well worth your search for pecans, I'm sure...this would make a very pretty dessert for our Thanksgiving table, instead of the usual pecan pie. Thank you!

    Looks delicious! I am originally from Louisiana in the southern USA where pecans are plentiful. This recipe reminds me of the pecan pies I ate growing up.
