Remember at Thanksgiving that one family member that doesn’t like pecans and rakes them off the Pecan Pie? Well, fret no more! I have a delicious pie just for that family member!

My Just Goo Pecan Pie has no pecans! It’s just the gooey, caramel nougat filling. And it’s fabulous!

I seriously patterned this after my Granny’s Pecan Pie recipe. It’s so good. It’s similar to a Chess Pie. I feel like this pie is out there somewhere and called something else. Butter Pie, Caramel Pie, Brown Sugar Pie – they would all appropriate for the taste, texture, and ingredients.

Just Goo Pecan Pie has a nice caramel flavor from the brown sugar. It’s sooooooo good! Honestly, I had to stop myself from eating it.

Furthermore, it’s also economical to make and you probably already have the ingredients right in your pantry and fridge.

Also, you can make this crust homemade. I like Never Fail Pie Crust recipe and Coconut Oil Pie Crust Recipe. Or, you can purchase a ready-made pie crust from your grocer.

The pie’s filling is really similar to the filling in pecan pie except without nuts. It’s super sweet,  a little sticky, and so very yummy. As well, it’s scrumptious topped with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. And, since caramel and salt go together so well, try a sprinkle of sea salt on your slice.

    This is one awesome pie. I am not supposed to eat any nuts and Pecan pie was my favorite. My wife made this for me and I ate nearly half at one sitting. It is almost addicting. It is now my favorite pie. Put gobs of whipped cream and sea salt on the pie. Thank you, Paula!
