Unfinished Pecan Pie

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food With Soul: Unfinished Pecan Pie! Before you ask…No, this pie is not made with raw dough and there’s no ingredient missing from the recipe. The “unfinished” word in the title simply means you may choose to eat it as is OR top it with sweetened whipped cream, buttery streusel, or caramel sauce. The choice is yours. ‘Course if I wanted to be snarky, I could say it is unfinished because there’s still a piece or two left in the pie plate. Any takers?



1 prepared pie crust, refrigerated

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 cup light corn syrup

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

3 eggs, room temperature

2 cups pecan halves and pieces


Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick oil. Unfold pie crust and ease into plate, pressing firmly against the bottom and sides. Fold and roll pastry edges under, even with the rim of the plate. Flute edges or press with fork tines. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, melted butter, corn syrup, sea salt, and eggs. Beat with an electric hand mixer until well blended. Stir in pecans. Pour mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Bake 40-50 minutes or until center is set. Allow to cool for two hours. Slice and Serve.

  1. In our house there is no such thing as “unfinished pecan pie”!!! As soon as it is out of the oven, it is consumed, whether ‘finished’ with whip cream, caramel sauce or just eaten plain! A pecan pie is “finished” when the plate is empty which happens pretty fast. 😋

    • Wow! That sounds like fun. Another favorite of mine is cherry pie with a crumble topping (similar to a Dutch Apple Pie, only cherry.) 🍎🍃🍒


      • Deep dish apple and dutch apple were other offerings. Pre pandemic, I took a quiche class (had no idea quiche was so easy).
        Bonus, back then, the chef instructor was my neighborkid’s roller derby teacher.

        My fav pie to make is caramel apple (I just add caramel pieces to a traditional apple pie).
