Thanksgiving is next week …and that means it’s time to start thinking about what recipes you will be using! If you want to try a few new one this year, the “Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond has you covered.
Ree’s Facebook post linked to a slideshow on her official Pioneer Woman website of a bunch of different Thanksgiving The slideshow was authored by Kara Zauberman, and features tons of Ree’s go-to Thanksgiving recipes.
Ree labeled these recipes as “easy,” and to make things even better, they can all be made in advance.
Ree loves Thanksgiving because you can make many of the holiday’s recipes ahead of time. She said, “I like the ritual of starting on Monday and prepping all week.”
Another recipe that is one of her “go-to’s” is her pecan pie recipe. All you need is an unbaked pie crust, white sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, vanilla extract, melted butter, eggs, and chopped pecans.
After preheating the oven to 350 degrees, you should mix the sugar, brown sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Dump the chopped pecans in the pie crust, followed by the sugar mixture. After a while, the pecans will start rising and mixing themselves.
Bake in the oven on a sheet pan, with foil loosely on top for at least 50 minutes, until it is a little jiggly, but as Ree says, “not over jiggly.” Let the pie rest until it is room temperature before serving. It’s best to make this pie the night before Thanksgiving!
It looks delicious. We know we will be making this next week! See her full recipe here.
