Long before I’d even considered starting this blog, I used to make this pie for the holidays when I wanted a break from traditional pecan pie.
While at its heart, this is more traditional than not, this pie has a couple of interesting things going for it. First of all, it has a buttery, cream cheese-y crust. Secondly, for those of you who love that gooey filling of pecan pies, there’s more of it than usual in this beauty.
Despite its somewhat daunting appearance, this is actually a simple pie to make. The only potentially tricky part is the crust. It can be a bit difficult to transfer the dough into the pan. Also, be sure not to skip the step of wrapping the pan in foil. It will help prevent a big mess.
This beauty is an impressive addition to your holiday dessert offerings. Small slices work well and will make it go further than a regular 9-inch pie. And, I’m guessing you’ll be asked to make this one again and again.
