The holidays are coming and no pie is more symbolic at Thanksgiving than this pie. Today, I am showing you how to make Air Fryer Pecan Pie.
There is nothing like sitting down in the fall and slicing yourself a bit slice of homemade pecan pie. It has one of the greatest combinations of flavors, between the salty of the peanut and the sweet of the corn syrup, it all works well together against the buttery flavor of the crust.
My mother had a saying when I was growing up, “there is always time for pie.”I think we had pie at every holiday. It was a staple in my childhood, my favorite was blueberry pie, but this came in a close second, and when I had holidays at my house, I would always make this.

Now the first thing that I will tell you about is the corn syrup. The reason why it is commonly used in pecan pie is you need the two things, the sweetness and for lack of a better word, the gooeyness. You can either use dark or light corn syrup. I usually use whatever I have on hand. The light syrup is characterized by more of vanilla, sweet flavor. The dark is said to be a richer flavor.
