Pecan pie is a classic American dessert that's ideal to bake over the festive season, whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving or just craving a sweet treat.
A classic pecan pie is a thing of beauty. If you've never experienced this All-American pud, then get baking – you'll never look back. Shortcrust pastry encases a nutty, slightly treacly filling in the original recipe, but we've embraced different combinations. How about a melty campfire s'more version, or a mash-up with the humble chocolate chip cookie...?
Choc chip pecan pie
Our beautiful choc chip hybrid is buttery, sticky and perfect for a festive gathering. Serve with a dollop of vanilla ice cream for a seriously rich dessert. Everything is better with a scattering of choc chips.
Pecan pie rolls
Don't let anyone tell you that you need to decide between two desserts – just combine them. Pecan pie meets cinnamon roll here in a truly irresistible tear 'n' share package. Serve warm with a drizzle of cinnamon icing for a decadent brunch.
Pecan mince pie
Hear us out... Putting a festive twist on the classic bake delivers even more indulgence. A spiced mincemeat tart is topped with pecans and served with brandy cream. A great alternative to Christmas pudding for non-traditionalists.
Great for getting kids involved in the kitchen, our fun pop pies boast the heavenly flavour combo of maple syrup, pecans and bananas. Try them warm or cold for a sweet breakfast treat with a drizzle of icing, or with custard or cream for dessert.
Mini pecan tassies
Ideal for satisfying that afternoon craving for something sweet, our mini pecan pie bites are a gorgeous crispy mouthful. Eat them warm from the oven with a drizzle each of maple syrup and cream, or just plain with a cup of coffee.
