Gluten Free Honey Pecan Pie

Gluten Free Honey Pecan Pie

For those who are trying to avoid Karo (HFCS), here is a great and tasty alternative for your traditional pecan pie.  All of my family tried this, and even my dad said it tasted good and not “different” at all.  This is a pretty big deal, as my dad thinks most of my stuff tastes too “healthy” lol.  Give this recipe a try, you won’t be disappointed!  My daughter Jasmine was quite pleased with this pie at her 6th birthday!

Honey Pecan Pie

  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup – 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 unbaked pie crust, chilled

  1. Preheat oven to 325.
  2. Whisk together honey, butter, salt and eggs.
  3. Add chopped pecans and pour into unbaked pie shell.
  4. Arrange pecan halves on top. (this is more of a decorative option)
  5. Bake at 325 for 40-45 minutes or until filling is set.  Cover crust with foil or pie crust shields after 15 minutes.
  6. Let cool and serve plain or with whipped cream.
