Pie is a baked dish made with pastry dough and sweet/savory filling. Given the love for sweet in my family, I make the sweet version always :). I love to read about the origin of the dish and how different countries adapt them. Some interesting info here – Pies remained as a staple of traveling and working peoples in the colder northern European countries, with regional variations based on both the locally grown and available ingredients. However, serving a slice of pie with scoop of ice cream, is North American style..
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup (1 stick butter), melted
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
One 9-inch deep dish pie shell, unbaked, or homemade pastry
1 cup pecan halves
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the brown sugar, granulated sugar and eggs until creamy.
Add the chopped pecans, melted butter, milk, flour and vanilla extract and stir to combine.
Pour the mixture into the pie shell. Arrange the pecan halves on top of the pie in a circular pattern.
Bake the pie for 55 minutes.
Check for doneness by shaking the pan slightly.
The pie should be firm with only a slight jiggle in the center. It will set more as it cools. Serve topped with vanilla ice cream or with a dollop of whipped cream.
