Jill, are steps 3 and 4 reversed?

Thank you for catching that =) I corrected it

In the video you mentioned arrowroot powder. I don’t see it in the printed recipe.

You are right Kelly, thanks for catching that and letting me know. The recipe has been fixed.
Thanks again

Jill had a 5-10 minute bake of the crust after pressing #4 and a second bake after putting the ingredients for 35 minutes after #6 then cooling for 30 minutes.

Thank you for the input as I just put the pie in for the second cook… can this be frozen?

Hello Juliette, I wouldn’t freeze it. I think the crust would just go soggy once defrosted.

This pie looks amazing. I have wonderful memories of pecan pie from my childhood as well, but it was so unhealthy. i am excited to try this healthier version. Thank you so much Jill! Glad you are back 🙂

Does it taste like peanut butter? I am thinking about trying this recipe but perhaps substitute with homemade pecan butter instead of peanut butter, think that could help or hurt?

Jill Dalton January 6, 2019 - 8:49 pm

I think it would work just great.

Hi Jill. Please add the last step of baking time and the tin dome you suggested. The total cooking time will need to be adjusted too. Thank you for another awesome recipe!

Thank you for catching that Ingrid =)
