Pecan pie


For the pie crust

  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • In a food processor add the flour, the icing sugar, the butter cut into cubes, and beat until the mixture looks like wet sand.
  • Add the yolks, the water, and beat until a dough is shaped.
  • Wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 30-60 minutes to rest.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper on your working surface and dust it with a little flour.  Place the dough on it, cover with more parchment paper, and roll it out -using a rolling pin- until it’s 35 cm in diameter. 
  • Dust off the excess flour and transfer the dough to a buttered 28 cm tart pan. Cover with plastic wrap and add legumes as pie weights. Fold the plastic wrap inwards, so there is no overhang, and bake for 30 minutes. 
  • Remove the pie weights, brush with the egg wash, and bake for 10 more minutes. 
  • Set aside to cool well and, with a knife, trim the excess dough overhanging the pan.

For the filling

  • Leave your oven on at 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • In a bowl add the granulated and the brown sugar, the eggs, the vanilla extract, the melted butter, and mix well until the sugar is dissolved. 
  • Add the glucose and whisk well.
  • Spread the pecans over the pie crust and pour the whole filling of the bowl over them.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes. Let the pie cool well. 
  • Serve with whipped cream and basil.
