Crock Pot Pecan Pie

Now that I’ve made Pecan Pie in a crock pot, I’m thoroughly convinced that anything can be made in a crock pot. The super-sweet filling that is so characteristic of a pecan pie sets up perfectly and the pecans turn beautifully golden in color.

Crock Pot Pecan Pie


For my family, fall and especially Thanksgiving is all about the pecan pie. Since I get a little tired (ok, a lot tired) of always cooking things the same way, I was really excited to try a Crock Pot Pecan Pie.

If you have an oval 6-quart crock pot like I do, a circular piece of refrigerated pie crust fits a little unevenly (obviously!) But it’s workable.

The dough cooks a little unevenly if you leave the excess on the long sides. I thought about trimming it off, but I love the crust so much, I couldn’t bring myself to discard any of it and it was too little to do anything else with. So I went with it and the pie crust was a little undercooked in parts, but totally delicious.Crock Pot Pecan Pie

I was worried that when I sliced it, it wouldn’t hold its shape, but it did. The trick is to let it cool completely. If you want to eat it warm, you can heat it briefly in the microwave.

With a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, I don’t think there’s any better southern dessert for fall!

Crock Pot Pecan Pie

PREP: 10 minutes
COOK: 3 hours
TOTAL: 3 hours 10 minutes
SERVINGS: 6 servings


  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans or a combination of chopped and whole pecan halves
  • Vanilla ice cream for serving


  • Spray the inside of a crock pot with cooking spray.
  • Place pie crust in crock pot and mold it to fit the shape of the crock pit. (This is easier if you have a round crock pot instead of an oval one, but you can make do with an oval.)
  • Stir remaining ingredients together, except pecans, until mixed well.
  • Stir in pecans. I like to leave about half the pecans to arrange on top of the filling to make it look prettier.
  • Pour filling into pie crust. If you reserved some pecans, gently place them on top of the filling.
  • Cover crock pot and cook on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

  1. We love pecan pie so I thought I’d give this crock pot method a try. I, too, have an oval cooker so I was faced with the same challenge in making the crust fit. I misjudged on the ends and some of the syrup bubbled over and under the crust and stuck big time! Thankfully, I had placed wide strips of foil underneath the crust to lift the pie out with so with a little manipulation I was able to get the pie out and unstick the foil from the crust before it hardened too much. That being said, I think it was the best pecan pie I’ve ever made! I did use white corn syrup (personal preference) and subbed half the granulated sugar with dark brown sugar, and used a tad less butter. Thanks for the inspiration! Who knew, delicious pecan pie from a crock pot! Will definitely make again.

      Glad you enjoyed it. It can be a little hard getting it out of the crock pot but I think the end result is worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The only thing I would do differently, is to substitute light Karo corn syrup for the dark. We just like it better.

    1. Betty Barker

      Does using light karo change the taste alot? also since im new to crockpot deserts how do u remove it from the crockpot for serving?

        It will be good with light karo syrup too. I actually think most people prefer light karo syrup. Dark karo syrup has a little bit of a molasses flavor and gives the filling a darker color but besides that- no difference really. I let mine cool completely in the crock pot and cut the slices while it was still in the crock pot. Didn’t have any trouble with it sticking.

        1. I use the same amount of corn syrup but I divide that amount evenly with light and dark. It really does make a difference in the taste.

            Yes!! I actually like a blend of light and dark the best too Pamela! But I hate to make people feel like they need to buy both. ๐Ÿ™‚
            I think I actually like the flavor of the light better, but I love the darker color that the dark corn syrup gives the pie.

        2. Pancake an waffle syrup is the best syrup for pecan pies. I have used it for years an everyone wants my recipe for a long time I didn’t tell everyone what syrup I used they would say their pie didn’t taste like mine now I tell everyone when I share my recipe. It really makes a difference in the taste.

            I have never tried that Betty. Will have to give pancake syrup a try! Thanks for letting us know!

          2. How much pancake syrup did you use? Not a lot of Karo available here. Could you use pure maple syrup?

  3. Jenny of Flour Sack Sweets

    I’m pinning this to try – I can’t even begin to explain the number of times I’ve ruined a pecan pie and it’s my all time FAVORITE. This looks so yummy!

    Christine this might have been the recipe that was the deal breaker for me to purchase a crockpot whilst living here in Hong Kong. This looks seriously delicious and I am so impressed on how great it turned out. Just pinned and yummed!
