Honey Pecan Pie

This Honey Pecan Pie recipe was lovingly made by my good friend Joyce. I was curious about the origins of pecan pie, made with honey or not, and consulted the great sage Google. It’s always been a love-hate dessert for me. In other words, it is not something I ever craved or loved so much that I had to have it, however, for some reason, whenever it’s served, I am never disappointed. As a result of my research, I learned that pecans were an important part of a Native American diet before the arrival of European settlers.

I found out that Pecan pie started with the French colony that settled in Louisiana after being introduced to the pecan nut by the Native American tribes. On the other hand, some believe it to be a variant of chess pie made with similar ingredients. In either case, we know you will love it.

Firstly, If you’ve made a homemade pie before, even the scratch crust, I commend you. This recipe calls for a ready-made pie crust, however, if you have a favorite pie crust recipe, feel free to use it. The ingredients you’ll need to make this pie are as follows:

  • 9-inch, unbaked pastry shell 
  • eggs
  • Waxing Kara Honey
  • light brown sugar packed
  • butter
  • vanilla extract
  • pecan pieces or halves

By following a few simple steps, these ingredients come together easily and you will love the result! Once your ingredients are gathered, the next step is making the pie. Of course, it all begins with preheating your oven to 350°F. 


How to Make Honey Pecan Pie

Step 1: Gather all the ingredients

You’ll need a 9-inch pastry shell, eggs, Waxing Kara Buckwheat Honey, brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, pecan pieces

Step 2: Mix all of the ingredients together

In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add honey, brown sugar, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Blend well and stir in pecans.

Step 3: Prepare the Pie and Bake

Pour the batter into a prepared pie shell and bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and filling is set. I like to arrange whole candied pecans on the top in an artful way, however, you can customize it any way you want.

Maybe you made buttermilk pancakes this weekend and you have some leftover buttermilk? What to do with buttermilk? There is no better place to invest leftover buttermilk than into a traditional buttermilk pie, a traditional southern delicacy (by way of the United Kingdom) often confused with chess pie.

Fun fact – bumbleberry is a made-up term to describe the magic that happens when three different berries get together for the sake of pie-making. As you may know, this bumbleberry pie is one of my favorites.
