Recipe by Chef John
"This is my idea of the perfect pecan pie. It has the perfect ratio of crunchy nuts to the sweet, sticky goodness underneath. And thanks to the blind-baking, the crust is wonderfully crisp."

First off... I absolutely love Chef John, and have never gone wrong with his video recipes! So I'm a little biased..
This was the first time I had ever made a pecan pie. I followed his recipe almost exactly, and was blown away! Amazing!!
My only 'issue' was something that I brought on to myself- I didn't have the pie weights that Chef John used in the video, nor did I substitute with dried beans or rice. Instead, I followed the instructions on the ready-made crust packaging, which told me to use a fork to puncture the crust prior to baking. Not good! It totally messed with the integrity of the crust, and did nothing to prevent the crust from bubbling up.
Next time, I will use pie weights, or beans, or rice, or whatever!
The pie didn't slice quite as nicely as Chef John's, but that could be because I didn't let it cool completely. BUT- warm, gooey Pecan Pie from the oven totally trumps proper plating.
I don't know what I did wrong, I followed the recipe but when cooled off it was very very chewy.
Amazing! Thank you chef John!
this and all your recipe's are delicious Chef John. Tank you for them.
All I can say is, fabulous!!!! Chef John, you did your thing with this pie, it came out great!!! This will become a family favorite.
This is the best pecan pie I have ever tasted!
Oh. My. Goodness, this is a fantastic Pecan Pie. Even my husband, who doesn't like pecan pie and only tried a bite to be polite because I was so ecstatic about it, loved it!
This is a hit in our house! We have made this pie 7 times for different holiday parties. If you like pumpkin pie try chef johns pumpkin pie recipe, you'll love it as well!
