Classic Pecan Pie

There is much to love about sweet, nutty pecan pie, but it’s easy for this simple dessert to turn out tooth achingly sugary and void of pecan flavour, with a curdled filling sogging a leathery crust.

We wanted to create the ideal recipe for a not-too-sweet pie with a smooth-textured filling and a properly baked bottom crust. We decided to start from the bottom up.

This quiche’s velvety custard makes it perfect for an elegant affair or a laid-back brunch. Store-bought pie dough, partially baked and still warm, can be used in place of the homemade crust.
