Ina Garten has already shared the side dishes and turkey recipe that she plans to make for her "micro Thanksgiving," but the "Barefoot Contessa" star knows that no feast is complete without dessert. 

So this week, Garten posted the recipe for her maple pecan pie, which she revealed can be prepped in just 10 minutes

"I may be making a micro Thanksgiving this year, but you can never have too much dessert!" Garten wrote in her Instagram caption. "This maple pecan pie is so good, no one will know that it took you 10 minutes to make!" 

"Yes, a store-bought pie crust is just fine!" she added, poking fun at her famous catchphrase about the quality of ingredients. 

Garten's maple pecan pie requires light corn syrup, "good" honey, pure maple syrup, unsalted butter, lightly beaten eggs, bourbon (she recommends Maker's Mark), pure vanilla extract, grated orange zest, kosher salt, and of course, pecan halves (unchopped).

To begin, first line a 9-inch pie pan with your pie crust and place it on a sheet pan.

But, as Garten assured fans, a store-bought pie crust is also perfectly fine. Just make sure to defrost it and crimp the edge if necessary once it's in the pie pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together your corn syrup, honey, maple syrup, butter, eggs, bourbon, vanilla, orange zest, and salt. Then stir in the pecans and pour your mixture into the unbaked pie shell. And that's basically it! 

Beyond the 10-minute prep time, the pie will need bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until the center is just set. You can check out the full recipe for Garten's maple pecan pie here.

Once your pie has cooled, it's ready to serve. As Garten would say, "How easy is that?"
