Amazing Decadent Pecan Pie is a rich, chewy, nutty, sweet, traditional holiday staple. For many the holidays aren't the holidays without this brilliant dessert on the table. This homemade delight is surprisingly super simple. You are going to love it!
Turn the dough out on the counter or cutting board, and shape into a disk. Wrap in plastic and rest in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
Take the disk of pie dough out of the fridge and roll into a circle about 2” larger than your pie dish. Use extra flour to keep the dough from sticking to the counter and roller.
Add 2 cups of roughly chopped pecans to the slightly cooled pie crust, reserving about ½ cup of whole pecan halves to create a pattern on top.
Pour the filling over the chopped pecans, allowing it to settle and fill all the spaces in between the pecans. Arrange the reserved pecans on the surface in a desired pattern.
Place the pie dish on a baking sheet and cover the edge with a pie shield or thin strips of foil. Bake for 60 - 70 minutes until the middle is just slightly jiggly.
