Method

How to make Pecan Pie

For the dough: Combine the flour,pecans, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until combined, and then add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles yellow cornmeal mixed with bean-size bits of butter, about 10 pulses. Add the egg and pulse 1 to 2 times; don't let the dough form into a ball in the machine. (If the dough is very dry add up to 1 tablespoon cold water.)

Remove the bowl from the machine, remove the blade, and bring the dough together by hand. Form the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, at least 1 hour.

Roll the dough out with a rolling pin on a lightly-floured surface into a 12-inch circle about 1/8-inch thick. Transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie pan and trim the edges, leaving about 1 inch extra hanging over the edge. Tuck the overhanging dough underneath itself to form a thick edge that is even with the rim. Flute the edge as desired. Freeze the pie shell for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile for the filling: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Mix together the pecans, Technique: Syrup Try using Lyle's Golden Syrup® to add a deliciously-thick and velvety caramel flavour to your recipe.

Technique: Whisk Using light, rapid sweeping strokes to thicken or thoroughly combine ingredients. You can also use a whisk attachment attached to a food processor.

Put the pie shell onto a baking sheet and pour in the filling. Bake on the lower oven rack until the edges are set but the center is still slightly loose, 40 to 45 minutes. (If the edges get very dark, cover them with aluminum foil halfway through baking.) Cool the pie on a rack, and then serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
