I had a blast demonstrating the process of how to make this timeless pie, especially since this is my grandfathers all time favorite pie. The Spicy Praline Bacon Topping was not in his style, but the basic Pecan Pie Recipe was a home run in our home.

Fun Fact: The name “pecan” is a Native American word that was used to describe nuts requiring a stone to crack.

Ingredients

Pecan Pie

  • 1 9 " Wholly Wholesome Pie Shell, Traditional, Whole Wheat or Spelt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 eggs, beaten lightly
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 cups broken pecans, broken into small pieces

Spicy Praline Bacon

  • 1 lb. thick-cut organic bacon
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Combine sugar and syrup in a fry pan over a medium heat for 5 minutes. Melt butter into mixture. Set aside to cool (if you’re in a rush, put the pan on a bed of ice in the sink). Preheat oven to 400°F. Once cooled, add eggs, salt and vanilla.
  2. Fill pie shell with broken pecans. Pour syrup mixture over pecans until it's just below the rim. Place on a piece of foil on top of a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 50 minutes or center of the pie is set.
  3. While the pie is baking, prepare the bacon. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, chili powder, black pepper, and cayenne. Stir until well mixed. Arrange bacon in a single layer on a broiling pan or a rack set in a jelly roll pan {line inside of the broiler pan or the jelly roll pan with aluminum foil}. Bake at 425°F for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle bacon slices with brown sugar mixture and then with pecans.
  4. Return pan to oven and continue baking until bacon is crisp, about 5 to 10 more minutes. Once both the pie and the bacon are done cooking, top the pie with a generous amount of prepared Spicy Praline Bacon and enjoy!
