2. Always Prepare the Crust First
When you are making a pecan pie, chances are that you are going to want to make the filling for the pie first. After all, it is easy to want to create that yummy gooey mixture so that you can try a bite before you bake it. In addition, it seems as if you would want the filling to be ready to go so that you can simply prepare the crust and bake your pie.
However, what many people do not realize is that if you let the filling sit for too long it is going to separate when it bakes. You will not notice this separation until it is too late. This is why you should have your crust ready to go before you start to make the filling. That way you can add the filling to the crust and not let it sit for very long. This will create a more evenly baked dessert.
