Pecan Pie

pecan1As I mentioned in my Cheerios Crust Pumpkin Pie recipe, when I went gluten-free I thought my pie-eating days were over! Now that I’ve learned how to make my own gluten-free pie crusts, and since I’ve found some great gluten-free pie-crust brands, my pie-eating days are back! This Thanksgiving, unfortunately I didn’t have time to make a pie crust from scratch, but I did have time to make this awesome pecan pie filling!

What You Will Do:
Mix the caro, sugar, and butter in a sauce pan. Bring just to a boil, and take off heat.
Beat 3 eggs separately, and gradually add the beaten eggs to the saucepan, beating with a low speed mixer until fluffy.

This pie is best when served warm! And store at room temp. I like to add a little whip cream or ice cream to to it off 😉 Happy Thanksgiving!
