This classic fall dessert uses honey in place of highly processed corn syrup. Preheat the baking sheet along with the oven. This will help the pastry cook to a perfect golden brown on the bottom. Serve at room temperature to allow the filling to set.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 cups pecan halves
Pastry:
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cubed

Method

Pastry: In bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until in coarse crumbs with a few large pieces.

Drizzle with 1/4 cup cold water, tossing with fork until ragged dough forms and adding up to 1 tsp more water if necessary.

Shape into disc; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in airtight container for up to 1 month.) Let pastry stand at room temperature for 5 minutes to soften slightly.

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to 12-inch (30 cm) circle; fit into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Trim to leave 1-inch (2.5 cm) overhang; fold under and flute edge. Prick bottom all over with fork. Chill until firm, about 30 minutes.

In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; whisk in brown sugar until smooth. Remove from heat; add honey, vinegar, vanilla and salt. Whisk in eggs.

Arrange pecans in pie shell; pour filling over top. Bake on baking sheet on bottom rack of 350 F (180?C) oven until filling is set, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool completely on rack.
