Thanksgiving Pecan Pie

When I was doing my research about Thanksgiving deserts I found a very special traditional thanksgiving dessert which I wanted to modify and try for my Thanksgiving dinner. This recipe is all about it and believe me, its super delicious and you will be amused with crust and a sweet pecan filling.

  • 1 pound of short crust pastry
  • ½ pound of pecan kernels
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups of brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons of acacia honey
  • 1 cup of soft butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder

For greasing the mold:

  • 1 tbsp of butter


  • Spread the dough on the work surface.
  • Butter a square or tart tin and line it with the pastry. Prick the dough with a few strokes of the fork, without piercing it. Put the mold in the refrigerator and let the dough harden while you prepare the filling. Turn on the oven at 360°F.
  • Prepare the filling: put the butter in a large bowl, add the brown sugar and beat for 1 minute with a hand whisk, until the mixture whitens.
  • Add in the honey, vanilla and eggs, one by one, whisking constantly. Add in the pecans and mix very well with the use of a spatula.
  • Remove the mold from the refrigerator and fill the dough with the pecan mixture.
  • Smooth the surface with a spatula. Slide the mold into the hot oven and bake for 50 minutes
  • When the pie is cooked, remove it from the oven and let it rest for 10 minutes, before unmolding it. Serve warm or cold.
  • Enjoy your dessert!
