Gluten free pecan pie
I have been making pecan pie for the past week. So far I have gotten 3 different versions and I don’t know which one I like best. They are all so good and so addictive…
When I made this gluten free pecan pie it was actually my first time making pecan pie. I was a little bit skeptical at the pie turning out but to my surprise it was super good. It was gone in a matter of a day so the next day I made another version and that one was also gone in no time.
I am really liking this dessert. For thanksgiving and Christmas this is going to be our dessert of choice.
I tried to healthify the pie a tad but with all of the sugar this pie calls for it was hard. I used a mixture of coconut sugar, which I love the color plus it is lower in the glycemic index, and maple syrup. The pie turned out perfect. I never use corn syrup so I thought why not maple sugar?
You can add more pecans to the top if you like and decorate the pie as you wish. I used heavy cream with a little bit of maple syrup and use a piping bag to give it a nice pattern.
