How to Make This Recipe

Now that you’ve gathered your ingredients, it’s time to make your cinnamon spice pecan pie.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating up, prepare the refrigerated pie crust as directed on the package in a 9-inch pie dish. Brush the edges of the pie crust with your egg wash and milk mixture.

To make the filling, whisk the eggs with melted but cooled unsalted butter and the corn syrup in a large bowl. Mix in ground cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt until well blended. Stir in roughly chopped pecans. To give your pie some extra cinnamon spice, use Cinnamon Pecans from Pecan Nation.

Pour your cinnamon spice pecan pie filling into the crust and bake for 50 to 55 minutes. Check to see if the pie is done by inserting a knife into the filling. If the knife pulls out clean, it’s ready to come out. Place your masterpiece on a wire rack to cool. The filling may settle a bit.

The only step left is to cut a huge slice, top it with whipped cream or ice cream, and enjoy!

The Best Pecan Pie Recipe: What You Need to Know

Everyone’s oven is a little different, so it’s important to keep an eye on your pie while it’s baking. After 20 minutes, check on the pie to see how it’s browning. We recommend adding a pie crust shield or a perimeter of aluminum foil to prevent the crust from burning after 20 minutes. If you find the whole pie is browning quickly, you can add a tent of aluminum foil over the entire pie.

You can absolutely use a homemade pie crust for this pecan pie recipe if you prefer. Bear in mind that a homemade crust will add more prep time to the recipe. You can often make your dough ahead of time to cut down on prep time in a single day.

You can also prep the filling the day before to save yourself some time. Make the filling without the pecans and keep it covered tightly in the fridge. Then, simply stir in the pecans when you’re ready to go. If you make the whole pie a day ahead, it’s best kept at room temperature.
