How do you Store Pecan Pies?

Store pecan pies covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Can you leave pecan pies at room temperature?

Pecan pies contain eggs, which can grow bacteria. They should be stored in the refrigerator.

How do you reheat Pecan Pie after it’s been refrigerated?

Bake previously baked and refrigerated pecan pies, in the oven, at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes or until heated through. If the crust starts to brown too much, cover the edges with foil
