Pecan Pie

Who doesn’t love a gooey, rich and delicious pecan pie. If you don’t make your own pastry, you could use a frozen crust.

Filling
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Beary Berry Honey
1 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups pecan halves

Pastry
1-1/4 cups (300 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/2 cup (125 mL) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1/4 cup ice cold water

Make the pastry

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt.
  2. Using your hands, work the butter into the flour mixture to make coarse crumbs.
  3. Add the ice cold water and work it in with a fork until a ragged dough forms.
  4. Shape the dough into a disc,  wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 1 hour.

To make the pie

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Set the disc of pastry on the kitchen counter and let it stand at room temperature for 5 minutes to soften slightly.
  3. Lightly flour the kitchen counter and roll out the pastry to 12-inch circle.
  4. Carefully lift the pastry round over a 9-inch pie plate. Trim to leave a 1-inch (2.5 cm) overhang; fold the edge under and flute the edge with your fingers, a chopstick or a fork.
  5. Prick the bottom of the pie crust all over with fork and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  7. Add the brown sugar and stir until smooth. Remove from heat.
  8. Stir in the honey, vinegar, vanilla and salt.
  9. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each.
  10. Arrange the pecan halves in the pie shell and pour the filling over them.
  11. Place the pie on the bottom rack of the oven and bake until the filling is set, about 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a rack.
