Pecan Pie with Scottish Shortbread Crust

Gluten Free & refined Sugar Free (can be Dairy free)

While cooking up in the mountains near the Mogollon Rim in Arizona this Thanksgiving, I finally got to master the idea I had for a Gluten Free Refined Sugar Free Pecan Pie, and nailed it!

I was thinking about English Treacle Tart filling and how Pecan Pie filling reminds me of that and of German Chocolate Cake frosting, I imagined how dates and coconut cream could make an excellent filling that was how I dreamed pecan pies should taste.

Technically you could do this pie raw but I bake it so that the filing gets a nice rubbery carmalized edge because that's what we're all after in life right?



1/4 cup dairy free or real butter

1 cup Gluten Free Flour (Or regular Flour)

2-3 Tablespoons Honey

Pulse all in food processor until mixed and dump then press into bottom only of pie pan or square pan. I do this recipe with no crust on the edge of the pie if you like crust on the edge do 1/2 cup butter and 2 cup flour for more dough.


9 dates

Half Can of Coconut Cream

1/4 cup pecans


arrange pecans all over the top pf the pie


350 for 20 min or until top is all golden brown and house smells like pie.
