  • Summary

    It's impossible to go wrong with pecan pie. Especially one that is really loaded with nuts, has a little verve from orange zest, and isn't overly sweet—exactly like the one here. Taking the time to track down new-crop pecans will push things right over the top.

    Ingredients

    • Pastry dough
    • 3/4 stick unsalted butter
    • 1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
    • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
    • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3 large eggs
    • 2 cups pecan halves (1/2 pound)
    • Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (for serving; optional)
