Do you put pecans on top of pie before or after baking?

Place the whole pecans on top, then stir in the chopped pecans. Bake the pie for 45 minutes, or until it is puffy and the center appears to be fairly set, then remove it from the oven and let it cool on a rack.

How do you keep pecan pie filling from seeping through the crust?

One way to stop that leakage is to paint the bottom crust with slightly beaten egg white before adding the filling. (Buttering the pie plate is important, especially for a pecan pie.) The filling tends to leak through the bottom crust and stick, making serving difficult.

What temperature do you bake pecan pie?

Bake the filling for pecan pie until it reaches a temperature of 185 degrees.
