Goo Free Pecan Pie is a twist on the Southern classic with less goo and extra pecans. If the pecans are what you like about a pecan pie, my version will become your favorite!

Just when you thought pecan pie couldn’t get any better!

I love everything about pecan pie. I like the crust and the goo and the pecans. (If you prefer a classic Pecan Pie, try this recipe.)  However, the dessert lover and baker in me wanted to try it with more pecans and less goo. I also want to try it with more goo and less, or no, pecans. (Stay tuned for that recipe coming later.)

This is good, y’all! Real good! I ate two slices immediately after photographing so I should know!

  1. My version is sweetened with honey but you can use brown sugar or Karo syrup. I prefer light corn syrup if using Karo.
  2. First of all, you may choose to make a homemade pie crust like my Never-fail Pie Crust or use a store-bought one. Either way, the pie will be delish! It does need to be a deep-dish pie crust.
  3. As well, I usually purchase pecans that are on sale whether they’re chopped or halved. Therefore, use what you have on hand or what’s on sale when choosing pecans.
  4. Finally, you can add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the pie if you wish.

My Goo Free Pecan Pie is rich and decadent. I changed up this Southern classic by adding more pecans and less goo than the traditional. It's out-of-this-world!
