Nutrition: per serving



  • 200 g Plain Flour
  • 100 g Butter Unsalted, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 2 tbsp Cold Water

For the Filling:

  • 200 g Pecan Halves
  • Salt
  • 150 g Golden Syrup
  • 100 g Brown Sugar Light
  • 50 g Butter Unsalted, melted
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • In a mixing bowl, blend together the plain flour and salt. Incorporate the cold, cubed butter by using your fingertips to rub it into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the egg yolk and cold water, stirring until the dough forms. Shape it into a flat disc, wrap it in cling film, and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • On a floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to match the size of a 9-inch tart tin. Gently press it into the tin and trim off any excess.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the golden syrup, light brown sugar, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until thoroughly mixed.
  • Evenly distribute the pecan halves over the pastry base.
  • Pour the syrup mixture over the pecans, ensuring they are all evenly coated.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is firm and the pastry turns golden brown.
  • Allow the pecan pie to cool before cutting and serving. It can be enjoyed either on its own or accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
