  • About

This pecan pie is made in the style of a tart, using a fluted tart pan with a removable bottom. It can also be made in a classic pie pan. A pecan pie is little more than a very sweet custard poured over pecans and baked. Pecan pie is made with both chopped pecans and whole pecan halves, which are used to decorate the top. While you could buy all pecan halves and chop some of them, it is less expensive to buy both pecan pieces and halves and use the halves only for the decorative finish. Bec
