The history of pecan tart

Delicious pecans over crunchy buttery biscuit paired with berries and soft Chantilly.

The pecan pie is a delicious dessert originating from the United States. The history of this pie dates back to the 19th century, in the southern region of the United States, where pecan trees are abundant.

The traditional pecan pie recipe is mainly attributed to the Southern cuisine, specifically the states of Georgia and Louisiana, which are known for their pecan production. It is believed that the early European settlers in the region were inspired by the tradition of nut pies that they brought with them from their home countries.

The combination of pecans with sweet ingredients like corn syrup and sugar, along with eggs and butter, created a delicious and cherished recipe that became an integral part of the culinary culture in the Southern United States.
