Gluten free pecan pie

Gluten free pecan pie recipe

Because pecan pie is incredibly sweet and delicious, this recipe is gluten free. In a blender or food processor, combine the rich nut filling. If you enjoy pecan pie, the filling is usually free of gluten-containing ingredients. The pie crust requires a substitution because the traditional crust contains wheat flour.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 8- or 9-inch no-bake gluten-free pie crust
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup walnuts plus about 20 whole walnut halves

Instructions

    1. Collect all of the ingredients.
    2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit / 218 degrees Celsius.
    3. Add the eggs, sugar, salt, corn syrup, melted butter, and vanilla extract to the jar of a blender or food processor bowl and pulse several times until just combined.
    4. 1 cup walnuts, pressed once or twice, until walnuts are coarsely chopped
    5. Place the remaining walnut halves around the top of the filling in the prepared gluten-free pie crust.
    6. Bake at 425 F / 218 C for 15 minutes, then reduce to 350 F / 177 C for another 30 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cake is lightly golden.
    7. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

Notes

  • An 8- or 9-inch pie pan with a removable bottom creates a nice-looking wavy crust and also makes cake cutting easier.
  • Make sure your cake is fully cooked; a pecan pie is similar to a custard tart, and if it is still runny in the center, it is usually due to insufficient cooking time.
