Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about my friend’s Louisiana Pecan Pie. It is a little different than Don’s Famous Favorite Pecan Pie, the recipe we always use at our house.
Elizabeth Cottrell of Heartspoken submitted this version of her family’s Pecan Pie. (Thank you, Elizabeth.) The recipe came from her husband’s aunt, Jeanne Cottrell, who was from a Cajun family in southwest Louisiana.
It has a little less corn syrup and more eggs than Don’s version. It appears it doesn’t take as long to bake it; it is baked in a slow oven (350F degrees) for 30 minutes. Don’s pie takes at least 45 minutes. Elizabeth adds, ” You can finely chop the pecans, but Aunt Jeanne preferred a combination of whole pecans and pieces. Aunt Jeanne’s handwritten recipe card says that honey can be substituted for corn syrup, but I’ve never tried that.”
How about trying this version of Pecan Pie for Thanksgiving and Don’s Famous Favorite Pecan Pie for Christmas? I love Pecan Pie. I’m sure I will love this one, too. Ever recipe Elizabeth Cottrell has submitted has been super good. I’m sure this is too!
We have to bring several pies to our Thanksgiving feast this year, so we had to get a few more pie plates. We bought some clear Pyrex pie plates, and they are terrific.
