– Pie dough is easier to work with if it’s chilled for about 30 minutes. – Prep pie baking dish with baking spray or with some coconut oil before you add in the crust. – Tent the pie with some foil paper so the pecans do not burn. – Best to let pie completely cool before slicing. Chilled is even better for perfect slices!
