Hey, how you all doing today? This is Dave; I'm Dave, cooking with Dave. Today I made some pecan pie. I have somebody to put new cook of pecan pie you says you're want to I would cook some pecan pie. I love pecan pie. You just want, I don’t know if you if you have pronounced it pecan but I pronounce it pecan and that’s the way it is pecan you know what I’m talking about. I'll bring it over here and show you how to put it together.
Okay, today I'm actually making two pecan pies so you'll need to cut in half there's recipe if you're going to make one. I'm doubling up everything to make two pecan pies because pie crust when you buy pie crust in the store ready to pan our pie put inside of it. It just uncooked pie in grocery, can you see that. They come in two so I forgot to make two. You're going to make your own pie crust for this there's no big deal. It just some flour and water, some dough, sprinkle you have some pie crust in nine inch pie pan and you're ready to go.
Okay, first thing we’re going to do is we're going to take two cups of sugar, remember I'm making two, if you're making one just do one cup of sugar. Two cups of sugar, oh yeah, it takes some sugar to make pie. Then I'm going to take two cups over light corn syrup and put in there. Oh yeah, like I said it take sugar to make pie. I start of making pies a few years ago I'm not much of a baker but I bake from time to time. I started making pie a few years ago and I was amazed to the amount of sugar that goes into a pie makes you want to stop eating pie all together.
I'm putting five eggs in there, I should be using six but I only have five so I'm going to use five. You know I'm going to take some vanilla extract and I'm going to use about a whole teaspoon call for half teaspoon for one so I'm going to put just the whole teaspoon full of extract vanilla in our pie. Then I'm going to add just a little bit of salt, I want to take about a half of teaspoon of salt and then we’re just going to mix this up, I needed a bigger spoon I got bigger spoon and we’d mix this up like so and then we’re going to get it ready for pecans.
And we’re going to add a little extra flavor to this thing today so we're going to get ready for pecans and caramel. We're going to melt some caramel and put some milks and caramel in our pecan pie. So boom, you're going to take a regular sauce pan and put about two tablespoons of butter in it, let them melt.
All right let's break it—I figure my butter start melting. I want to put a cup of milk in this. I'm going to melt me some caramel. We have little caramel flavor in our pecan pie. It says some candy caramel pieces to go plus a dolphin and I have butter and my milk starting to get hot. I start to add caramel pieces and let them melt them all together and then we're going to add it to our pie.
You don’t have the stove on high with medium high I'm going to stay here and watch it the whole time and keep stirring it. So I don’t have to worry about it so much. If you're not going to be to watch it all the time just do it lower, do it on the medium heat, you still got a stir it pretty much a lot. Just keep stirring it until it becomes a nice smooth caramel mix. Just keep stirring it until it gets nice and smooth until it stick to the bottom keep stirring it up until we get nice smooth caramel candy.
Okay, get it all nice and smooth go ahead and turn the heat off. I want to keep stirring it until I make sure it all pretty much warm. And it will all be the same texture through that I want to leave any thick caramel on the bottom of the pot. I'm going to all start up into the pot and you see it a little bit soupy so I will let it stand all to the side and cool down just a little bit and then we add it to our pie.
Back to our pie filling we have those filling with the eggs and our sugar and corn syrup, a little bit of salt, a little bit of vanilla all up in there. But now we’re going to go ahead and stir in our caramel. Put it all in there. Our caramel looking good, don’t be good to take your special flavor for our pecan pie.
Now, I'm going to start to add my pecan and what I did was I got a bunch of these—have you see that? But here I have a bunch of broken up pecans. I take this broke up pecans and I put them inside the pie and I take this whole pecan, you see that? That’s the whole pecan, not broken it’s been shelled and it’s the whole pecan. We’ll put those on top. We’ll put the broke up pecans inside the pie.
All right just put you pecans and stir them in. That’s be calls for cup of a four, I'm using about three cups I'm making two pies so about three cups of pecans and I want to make sure there's a lot of pecans in my pie because I like the pecan. Let's stir this up just get them all and mix in and make sure everything is mix together, you know how to make pie, we make pie we make sure it’s all mix together.
Now we're going to put the pie into our pie crust and we just dump it in there make it level like a rub there some pecan on that one. Now we don’t want to over fill the pie I'm not putting a little too much but I got a bunch of them. But right until it’s up of them pie room with our pie. And then we’re going to take our pecan better nut. I'm just put it right on top to there to make this a little pecan crust. I like it turn all right side up but you don’t have to you can just throw them on there if you want too but I like it turn all right side up like that. Okay, now there's our pecan pie and all I going to do is I put this in the oven 350 degree Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes maybe just the pie crust gets brown and cook and they’ll be ready to go.
Oh we got it little cool some more because it’s not ready. We're going to cheat and take this piece out here and taste it. It is not ready. Oh it’s going to cool, let's this cool three or four hours. All right, I try to cut the pie earlier but it was too soon I need to let it settle a little while longer but while I was sitting here somebody came along and stole a piece. So then I cut the piece and show you what it looks like on the inside it’s wonderful. You can now beat this pie; there's a piece of pie, that there is what you call pecan pie. Oh, it so sweet, but you shouldn’t not eat the whole bunch of this. That right there shall we call pecan pie, oh this going to be good. I’m going to eat this.
There you go pecan pie, wonderful double up pecan pie. It takes about three to four hours to let this bad boy sit down and just cool off or you can cut it to eat it. Now also you can cut it too early you got to let it chill up and come one before you cut into maybe with man you cannot beat just like can to a pecan. Yeah, I try to forget because when you go ahead have this pecan it’s wonderful you can beat up and you will love those lots. All right, remember I'm world’s greatest chef so it’s already to wear your apron you'll have a great day. Thanks.
