Enjoy this delicious pecan pie for your Thanksgiving dessert.

Thanksgiving and pecan pie go together hand-in-hand. In fact, without some sort of pie present at our Thanksgiving table, it just wouldn’t be quite complete. If you’re looking for an easy but quirky take on a traditional pecan pie that will wow your Thanksgiving guests, read on.


  • heaping 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp molasses, blackstrap or regular
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup or agave
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1-2 tbsp bourbon
  • 2 tbsp nut butter of choice
  • 1/4 cup flaxmeal
  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • optional 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • optional pecans for garnish


  • You can use any homemade or store-bought 9-inch pie crust.
  • Whisk together all ingredients (except optional garnish), and let sit at least 30 minutes in the fridge, during which time it will thicken, thanks to the flaxmeal.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Pour filling into a crust. Arrange the optional extra pecans over top if desired.
  • Bake on the center rack 35 minutes, then do not open the oven door but let sit in the now-turned-off oven an additional 10 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
