    Mock Pecan Pie Recipe?????

    I think I remember seeing a recipe for a pie that's made like a pecan pie but used something else in place of the pecans. With the cost of pecans now-a-days I was just wondering plus I have a friend who cannot eat nuts but loves the pecan pie filling.

    I used to make a mock apple pie using crackers which was pretty good. I found this recipe for mock pecan pie using oats.

    MissEva ... you could make it without the nuts ... just mix up more filling, to fill the pie crust.

    If you wanted add-ins ... cherries, coconut, raisins, craisins, other nuts (yes, an allergy issue, unless by chance there is one that is OK)

    Good suggestion, QuiltAddict!!
    ... I've made this pie before and it is quite delicious.


    MissEva ... Just don't tell anyone that it is made from oatmeal or they turn up their nose without trying it.
    Granted, that could be good ... as there'd be more for you!

    I have seen a recipe for mock pecan pie and it used crushed pretzels in place of the pecans. The best I can remember , everything else was the same as the pecan pie recipe.

    Make it the same as regular pecan pie but use 3/4 cup grape nuts cereal. You will swear you are eating pecan pie,

    My step mother had a tart recipe that was just like pecan pie. In some she put 1 whole half pecan and in the others she put 3 or 4 raisins. I actually liked the raisin ones better. HTH

    i have not tried this recipe, but i make a grapenuts bread that tastes like it has nuts in it, but has none. this might be worth a try. i think i have an empty pie shell in the fridge....

    Here is one that I copied the other day because a lady I work with is allergic to nuts. Haven't tried it yet.

    Faux Pecan Pie

    Filling
    4 Eggs
    1-1/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup plus 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
    3/4 cup light corn syrup
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Deep Dish Pie Shell, unbaked
    Topping
    1-1/2 cups crushed pretzels
    3 T butter, melted
    2 T sugar
    Instructions
    Preheat oven to 350.
    For Filling:Place first five ingredients in large mixing bowl and mix with wire whisk until well combined.
    Pour into pie shell.
    Combine all topping ingredients in medium bowl and stir well with a spoon to coat pretzels.
    Sprinkle topping evenly over pie.
    Bake in 350 oven for 1 hour, covering with foil after 30 minutes to prevent over browning.
    Allow to cool completely before serving. Can be made a day or two ahead of time and stored in refrigerator.
