Classic Buttery Pecan Pie

 

Just like pumpkin pie, it is also pecan pie season!! The amazing thing with these pies, is that they are the easiest ever! I like to make them look pretty by just adding some decoration from pastry. This is one of my trick, if you want to make your pies a little bit more elaborate, just buy some cheap stamps ( Loads on amazon ) and cut out some piece of the leftover pastry, to then add to the pie half way through the baking time 🙂
