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!

    1. Yayyyy!!! Thank you so much for commenting, I’m so happy you liked it! and I agree, it’s very hard to stop eating! 😀

  2. 5 stars
    This was incredible. Exactly what I hoped it would be. Only issue was it cooked much quicker than anticipated so keep an eye on it. I used half corn syrup and half honey and the taste was perfection.

    Can you make a crust less pie also without the pecans. I just love the filling lol

    1. While I haven’t tried it crustless, I did find a couple of versions of traditional pecan pie recipes that were made crustless so you probably can. Idk if it’ll slice and serve like a slice of pie, but you can always scoop it out to serve it.

  4. I am planning to make this pie for Christmas dinner. I love pecan pie. But can no longer eat the pecans. So happy I found this recipe! Also I am going to try to get my husband to try it. He doesnt like pecans… very picky guy. But hopefully I can get him to try it if I tell him it’s a brown sugar pie or caramel pie. Me on the other hand, I will try anything at least once. Maybe twice. Thank you for all the tips. You are the best!!! Looks like a very Delicious recipe! Cant wait to try this!

    1. Thanks so much. I hope you and your husband enjoy it. I’m picky regarding ‘real’ food, but there aren’t many desserts I don’t like. 😍

  5. Ok…I know this must sound like an odd question…but here goes…
    I’m an old lady who had to have all my teeth extracted…can’t be replaced…so my question to you is….can I grind pecans in a very fine state…before going to butter(paste)….I’m missing my pecan pie…and tons of the food…
    It’s no fun…thanks for any & all help you can give me….Paula Guffey
