Your new favorite Thanksgiving dessert: Honey Pecan Pie 🍯🥧🐝

As Thanksgiving is not celebrated that much in Germany, I felt the need to get myself into the HiveTracks team's spirit. Laura, our COO, who used to be a professional baker, shared her favorite recipe of a typical American Honey Pecan Pie with me. Bee aware, beekeepers, and those who want to become them – there is a lot of honey involved! But that's what also makes this pecan pie so special!



  • 1 Cup of your favorite Honey

  • 3 Eggs

  • ¼ Teaspoon of Salt

  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla

  • 1 Tablespoon melted Butter o. Oleo

  • 1 ½ Cups coarsely chopped pecans

  • 10-inch unbaked pie shell

🍯


My friend, Katinka, a trained dietitian, shared a proverb with me that her former cooking teacher taught her, which rhymes in German:


„Eins, zwei, drei und vielleicht ein Ei.“

(= "One, two, three and maybe an egg.")


This basically means that for the pie shell, a relatively simple shortcrust, one can add one part sugar, two parts butter, three parts flour, and, if wanted, an egg. We pre-baked the pie crust for about five minutes and then added the filling:


  1. Beat the eggs well.

  2. Then go ahead and add honey, vanilla, salt, melted butter, and some chopped pecans.

  3. Pour into a pie shell and bake for a total of 35–40 Minutes.

  4. When a silver knife is inserted and comes out clean, go ahead and take out the pie.

  5. Cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving!



The pie is delicious, both warm and at room temperature. You might want to top off the pecans with whipped cream, ice cream, and/or a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar. Or keep it simple, with a cup of black coffee on the side, just like we did!


🥧


We actually ended up having our own little early Thanksgiving party (Berlin Edition), and got into the Holiday Spirit of the ending year!



Have a good week, and happy Thanksgiving! 🦃
