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.

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.

  2. I am going to try this without the pie crust due to a gluten free diet necessity. Do you think parchment paper lining the crockpot willbe sufficient for keeping it from burning, I plan to cook it on low, also.
    Thanks in advance!

      I’m not entirely sure Jillian how it will cook without the crust, but parchment paper seems like the best way to do it. You might need to shorten the cooking time some too. Hope it works out for you!

  3. Can I use a crockpot cooking bag when making items like your pecan pie or Pineapple Upside Down cake?

  4. Definitely going to try this. As for all the discussions about which syrup is best, I like to use 1/2 light and 1/2 dark. Another delicious variation is to use 3/4 cup light syrup and 1/4 cup pure maple syrup.

  5. The pie was delicious, but the cooking time and temperature were way off. I checked it after 1 hour on HIGH and the crust was already overdone, so I turned it down to low and cooked for another hour. I’m guessing 2 hours on Low would work better for an oval crock pot.

  6. Hi ? I was wondering why you use the dark corn syrup? Would it be okay If I used the light version as I can’t seem to dark dark in my area

    Thanks for your help??

    1. Julie…I just saw your question about using light vs. dark corn syrup. Either one is fine…half my family makes them with light, half with dark…both delicious! I hope Christin doesn’t mind that I offered an answer. ?

      1. Oh thank you Joyce? I went ahead and got the light today and will be making it tomorrow. Can’t wait to try it

        Thanks so much for answering Joyce! I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with comments so I really appreciate the help!

    2. I love love LOVE pecan pie made with dark corn syrup!!! It is soooooooo much better than light! It becomes very caramelly when cooked and gives a wonderful flavor. Light karo pecan pie doesn’t begin to compare. You can make it that way but. . . . .

        Why not use Pure Cane Syrup? Makes better pecan pie than corn syrup IMHO. Cna get it on line from several producers.

    I substituted walnuts for pecans because that is what I had on hand. I’m glad that I did. It came out delicious!

    1. Cindy Barnett

      I don’t like pecans, we have always made the pecan pie with walnuts, so that is what I will use

  8. I always add 1teaspoon of vinegar. It makes it not tazte so sugary. No vinegar taste and everyone likes it better.

    1. My favorite is chocolate pecan pie. Adding 3 T. of cocoa powder cuts down on the sweetness and the taste is fabulous. Also, I just dump the pecans in. They rise to the top anyway.

  9. This just amazes me Pecan Pie made in a slow cooker wow. Will have try it one of these days. Thanks

    CRISTIN YOU ARE A LIFE SAVER MY HUSBAND loves pecan pie the problem is I don’t have an oven . I always buy them at the store this will be awesome I thank you and my husband thanks you.

  11. I think that I am the only male that responded, but I enjoy cooking__mostly good Southern country food. I really liked the pecan pie. Gonna try with other pies.

  12. Hi Christin,

    If I decided to bake the pie in the oven and use a ready made (uncooked) pie crust , how long should I bake it?

    1. That was going to be my question. How to get it out of the crock pot in one piece. Did everyone then put the pie in a regular pie dish? How do you store it?

  13. Definetly trying this, I’ve made the pecan cobbler in my crock pot & pumpkin pudding both very good. The pumpkin pudding is so easy but it is awesome

  14. This sounds absolutely amazing!! Do you think it would make it easier to serve if I lined my crockpot with parchment paper?

    1. Christin
      Christin Mahrlig

      Thanks Sarah. I think parchment paper would make it easier to get out, but I’m wondering if the crust would stay too soft.

      1. Came out beautifully, but the filling was a bit thin…I think my crockpot (oval) is too big. It didn’t stick at all. I sprayed it heavily with oil. I’d like to try it in a smaller round crockpot.

          I haven’t tried that Karen. I’m not sure if it would make the crust get soggy or not. If you give it a go, let us know how it turns out!
