    Hi Gemma
    Just a quick question before I try this recipe: about the egg yolks. Does egg size matter? If it does, can you tell me which size is best, and if you happen to know, how to adapt the recipe if using different sizes? Example: best with 6 large egg yolks, or 7 medium, etc. Seems like a lot of bakers recommend large eggs in their recipes, but my partner prefers medium ones, therefore buys those, so I don’t always have large ones in the house. Your thoughts?
    Thanks!

      Eggsize would matter if we’re talking about large and small. Generally however, the eggs required in recipes usually refer to sizes between medium and large. Medium ones are also the most available size in stores. You can interchangeably use medium or large eggs in the recipe.

    My husband and I just dove into the Pecan Pie: and I must agree with you it is the best Pecan Pie we ever had! Just wondering what You do with all those egg white? don’t want to be wasteful! Oh, before I for get the filling was a bit runny! Didn’t I let it sit long enough to set? In any case it was delicious!

      Hi Lynnette,
      I am delighted you like this recipe, it is a favorite here too!
      The egg whites freeze really well, I do this all the time. Perfect then for a meringue roulade, when guests are coming. (https://www.biggerbolderbaking.com/meringue-roulade/) this is always a big hit at my house, serves a big number too as a little goes a long way. Try this too with lemon curd filling, and toasted almonds, with a little fresh cream, that is a marriage made in heaven!
      I hope this is of help,
      Gemma 🙂

    I have a question on pie crust. Most recipes tell you to refrigerate pie crust after you mix the ingredients. When you take it out of the refrigerator, do you let it become room temperature before rolling it out? It seems difficult to roll out and is crumbly if I roll it out as soon as I take it out of the refrigerator

    • Gemma Stafford on July 2, 2019 at 3:04 am

      Hi Janie,
      No! it is important to keep any pastry as cold as possible before baking.
      It sounds like there is not sufficient liquid in your mix. It takes very little to make a pastry too wet, but too dry will not work well for a rolled pastry.
      Add a little more liquid a few teaspoons or so at a time, that should resolve this for you,
      Gemma 🙂

        Gemma, I could just hug you! Your pie crust recipe is the recipe that I hoped it would be! I just made an iron skillet apple pie and I make my own pie crust. I have never had good luck with pie crust because it has always been crumbly when I try to roll it out. This pie crust rolled out beautifully! Thank you ! Thank you ! You have made me look like a ROCK STAR!

        • Gemma Stafford on July 4, 2019 at 7:46 am

          Janie, all hugs, even virtual ones, are gratefully received here at BBB headquarters, and yours arrived safe and sound <3
          I think you are a rock star because you kept at it, persistence is an underrated virtue - well done you.
          It sounds like your pastry in the past may have had too little water, it takes a very little extra to get it just right, it is as little as a teaspoonful sometimes.
          I am delighted you got this right for you, well done and thank you for being in touch,
          Gemma 😉
