How to Bake Pecan Pie: Georgia Pecan Month

Georgia Pecan Month has arrived and it’s time to bake a Pecan Pie.

PecansPecans are a Native American nut, primarily cultivated today in Georgia from a native variety of hickory tree.

A high fat, in fact one of the nuts, which is heaviest in fats — sometimes as high as 75% fat.

The downside of high fat content is that they tend to become rancid quickly, so it’s best to store them in the freezer to keep them fresh tasting.

There is no doubt they are one of the most delicious tasting nuts, and ideal for incorporating into rich cookies, pies & cakes.

A tasty pecan butter can be created easily & used as a spread for toast, fresh bread or muffins, which is a delicious change.

A very good recipe for pecan pie follows.

How to Bake Pecan Pie:

  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract or dark rum
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 cups pecans


  1. Prepare a pie shell in a glass pie plate with a deep edge – either made yourself or purchased. Bake the shell as directed.
