For this Christmas recipe, you will need three eggs, a cup of light brown sugar, a cup of Karo syrup, a tablespoon of vanilla extract, one and a half cups of pecans and a piecrust.
First, you’ll need to thaw out your Christmas piecrust. While it’s thawing, preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees. Now, put the defrosted piecrust into a pie pan.
In a mixing bowl, you now need to combine the ingredients for your Christmas pecan pie. Stir all the ingredients (eggs, vanilla, pecans, sugar and syrup) with a fork until they are evenly mixed. Pour the mixture into the piecrust and bake for about an hour in the oven.
When your Christmas pie is done, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool completely, uncovered. When you serve it, you can get creative with toppings. For instance, whipped cream is a great addition to a Christmas pecan pie, though vanilla ice cream is also very popular.
You can also serve this delightful dessert with hot coffee for a great way to end a Christmas dinner.
You have now made your very own homemade pecan pie for Christmas dessert – it’s a simple, tasty addition to any holiday menu. With a little creativity and time, you can come up with other toppings that might go well with your Christmas dessert, as well.
