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.

  1. Is it possible to make this in an 1.5 qt crock pot?
    I live alone and would love to have some pie. . .

  2. cooking on high might as well buy me a fast crock pot ?.
    Slow cooker idea was to cook on slow(lol) .

  3. I’m going to purchase premade frozen little single pie shells, or purchase a large package of pie shells (usually 2 to a pkg.) use a large cup, cut out the pie crust with the cup, form fit single pieces over muffin tins, bake ahead—-let the pecan mixture cook away and when I’m ready to serve, line up the baked pie shells, fill and top with real whip cream. Oh, YUM!

  4. My husband just made this in our 6 qt. oblong slow cooker. We had a hard time waiting for it to cool – so we cut into it. Absolutely fabulous!!

  5. I made this today and it is absolutely amazing….a little hard to get out of crockpot, so I was wondering if I could line my crockpot with foil so I could lift it out and place on a pretty platter?

      You can put in plastic made for crock pot liner, you just lift out when done. Works perfect for me. You can cool, before lifting out. Or if hot still can, but might be a little messy. I put the whole thing in a roaster pan to cool.

  6. Well..I just fixed this crockpot pecan pie for my husband for valentines..warning need to do a trial with your crockpot ..I used a 5 qt round ..followed directions to the t..got busy talking to mom on the phone & when checked at 2 1/2 hours the crust was already burnt black..couldn’t eat…it went together beautifully..but temp too high on high… & too long for my crock pot..luckily I had purchased ..pills bury flaky cherry turnovers..looks like it would have been wonderful..but oven only takes around am hour ..
