Luxurious Gluten-Free Pecan Pie

A pecan pie that's softer and creamier than traditional pecan pie---even velvety according to Son!



  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Have pie pan with unbaked pie crust ready to go. (I use my No-Roll, Never-Fail, Press-In Pie Crust.)
  2. In large bowl, beat eggs well. Mix in remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour into prepared crust and bake about 45 minutes, or until crust is browned and pie is slightly puffy.
  4. Cool to room temperature before serving. As pie cools, pie will deflate and firm up.


Adapted from Richard Bland College’s 1963 Luxury Pecan Pie recipe. Richard Bland College is home to the oldest and largest pecan groves in Virginia. There are nearly 1,000 pecan trees on the grounds. Each year the pecans are harvested and proceeds used to advance student success and maintain the groves.

Using pecan pieces versus pecan halves makes for easier, “cleaner” pie slicing.
