Caramel Pecan Pie

Some folks love chocolate while others opt for caramel.

Ingredients for filling

1 cup sugar, divided
3 tablespoons butter
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup chopped pecans
1 deep-dish 9 inch pie shell, baked

Ingredients for meringue

½ teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sugar

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sprinkle ½ cup sugar into a heavy skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and light golden in color. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Set aside.

2. In a saucepan, combine cornstarch, salt, and remaining sugar; stir in milk until blended. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture begins to thicken. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks. Stir about ½ cup of hot milk mixture into yolks; return all to the saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Add caramelized sugar and cook until thickened. Remove from heat. Add butter, vanilla and pecans; stir to blend. Pour into

3. For meringue, in a mixing bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla until foamy. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spread evenly over filling, sealing edges to crust. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting.

Pecan Pie Ice Cream Pie

Pecan Pie – Ice Cream Pie

A new twist on the classic pecan pie: a nutty pressed pie crust is filled with a buttery, rich pecan-vanilla ice cream. With the extreme heat we have been having in the south, this is a great way to cool off!


Ingredients for the Crust

¾ cup pecans
¼ cup sugar
1½ cups flour
8 tbsp. butter, cubed and chilled
1 egg yolk
¼ cup cold water

Ingredients for the Candied Pecans

1 egg white
2 cups whole pecans, plus more to garnish
2 tbsp. sugar


1. Make the crust: Combine pecans and sugar in food processor and process until finely ground. Add flour and process to combine. Add butter and pulse until pea-size crumbles form. Add egg yolk and ¼ cup ice-cold water and pulse just until combined. Transfer to counter and knead into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. On a floured work surface, roll dough until 1/8 inch thick. Line a 9 inch pie plate with dough, and prick with the tines of a fork over the bottom; bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes, and then let cool completely. 

2. Make the candied pecans: Whisk egg white in a medium bowl until frothy and loose; add pecans and sugar and toss until evenly coated. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in an even layer, and bake until lightly toasted and dry, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely. Make the ice cream using your favorite recipe. When ice cream is ready, stir the candied pecans into it, and then transfer ice cream to pie crust, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula. Garnish with more whole pecan halves, and freeze until set, at least 4 hours.
