Traditional pecan pie, fall dessert concept for Thanksgiving

Grandma’s Gluten Free Pecan Pie Recipe

When someone says pecan pie, I’m transported to my Grandma’s kitchen. One of my fondest memories is watching her press the pie crust between her knuckles to make the beautiful decorative shell of the pie. She would then gently pour the pecan mixture into this painstakingly beautiful, yet gluten-full crust.

Now, in my adult life, pecan pie is still a key part of holiday meals. I still make my grandma’s recipe, but I modify it to use a gluten-free crust. While it seems like nothing can quite replicate the way that grandma used to do it, I try my hardest. Yes, sometimes I do cut corners due to time constraints. When I want to go the easy way, I buy a pre-made crust from the local health food store or use a pie crust mix – but I still use the same recipe inside the pie for the best results.
