I’ll be honest, I have never been much of a pie person. I always assumed that homemade pie was difficult to make and I didn’t want to spend the holidays dealing with unruly pie crust and cleaning up after baking all day.
That all changed when I made our Simple Pumpkin Pie Recipe. I had no idea that homemade pie could be so easy!
After I tried that easy pumpkin pie, I decided I would give it another go and made this amazing Chocolate Pecan Pie.
My dad has always loved pecan pie, so I knew I needed to come up with a recipe that was simple and delicious.
This recipe takes only a few minutes to make and is absolutely foolproof. This semi-homemade pecan pie (thank you frozen pie crust) was a hit with everyone and is now a staple at our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
If you are all about that from scratch homemade pie, you can definitely use homemade pie crust. My friend, Nikki, has this amazing recipe for pie crust that we have used a few times and it is so flaky and delicious.

How to make the easiest Homemade Pecan Pie:
Set pie crust out to thaw the night before in the refrigerator, or set out at room temperature until thawed.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together brown sugar, melted butter, corn syrup, salt and eggs.
Coarsely chop 1 1/2 cups of pecan halves and fold into pie filling.
Pour filling into pie crust.
Top with remaining pecan halves.
Place in the center of a baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the center is set.
Let cool and store in the refrigerator before serving. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
This Easy Pecan Pie is so sweet, that you don’t even need to sweeten your whipped cream if you are making it yourself.
This pie also goes great with vanilla ice cream or can be eaten completely on it’s own. Whichever way you serve it, we know this Easy Pecan Pie will be a hit this holiday season.
