It is delicious, but..........







I've been DYING to try the CROCK POT
PECAN PIE....that one over there on my sidebar......

First, you must Pam-spray the sides and bottom of your pot.

Next, you just lay your uncooked pie crust in the bottom of the crock pot.....
Recipe says to let your crust  come up a half inch or so on the sides....

hmmm...looks like I have a good inch coming up the sides....

OK.....NEXT......


In a large bowl, mix your ingredients all together:

eggs
sugar
vanilla
melted butter
dark karo
pecans









Did you mom teach you to put your measuring cup on the counter when measuring.....so that you'd get the exact amount called for..??
Mine did, too.












...by this time, I am ready to eat it ALL......RAW...!!

 ...pour all into the crust...

whew......lookin' pretty.



Put the lid on, set the timer for 2 hours....

check it.....

add another hour if necessary...

Now, it took 3 1/2 hours for mine.....

Then, let it cool and see if you can lift it out of that

DEEP crock pot, maybe using a spatula.

"I don't THINK so !!!! "
Mine is in the fridge, cooling, cause we can't WAIT for it to cool enuf to C.U.T.

I am still trying to figure out the WHY of this PIE cooked in a crock pot.
In the oven, the pie would have been done and on the window sill, cooling, in an hour and a half....

Oh, if you work, it might be nice to cook it in the pot...but, you'd need one that turns itself off in a couple or three hours....

 I had a TERRIBLE time getting mine OUT OF THE CROCK POT....
I had to just scoop it out, try to FORM it to look like a pie...

Mr. Sweet ran to the freezer and got  ICE CREAM and we ate it on our pie, while it was still hot.....

HELLO....!!

we discovered pie doesn't HAVE to be beautiful to taste like HEAVEN...!


 A friend told me I should have used a CROCK POT LINER....
...that it would have been easy to lift the pie out of the pot.

 I didn't even know there was such a thing as a
CROCK POT LINER...
did you??
I must live under a rock......never even heard of one.





If you don't have time to bake a Pecan pie IN THE OVEN....
and you have a CROCK POT LINER,
give this one a try.

The recipe is awesome ....I got it off Pintrest.
XOXO

BJ, my husband and I would totally be eating that hot pecan pie with a spoon. :) Just stick to your pie pan.

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME/Doublewide Decor said...

Yes, I even have the crock pot liners! woohoo!!
Looks really good though!

everythingsewing said...

It looks soooo good. Going to give that a try.

Please don't buy the liners BJ. Just make your amazing pecan pie with those gorgeous nuts from your yard as you always have-and enjoy:@)

Alycia Nichols said...

Hi there! I'm visiting from The Home Girl's FFF blog party. I'm your "2 doors down" neighbor! :-)

I have never heard of a Crock-pot pie OR a Crock-pot liner! Seems to me that this recipe would come in REAL handy in summer, though, when you want a pie but DON'T want to turn that hot oven on. I like pecan pie year-round (with ice cream...just like you and your husband!), but it gets scorching hot here in the Kansas City, MO area. So I could see myself giving this a try. Gotta look up those liners, though. That would make it a little easier for getting it out AND cleaning up afterward!

Glad to hear that your home was not near the tragic event in West, TX. I just saw that on the CBS Evening News and couldn't believe my eyes. What a horrific scene! I don't know if you saw the clip where the little boy was telling his Dad, "I can't hear! Let's get outta here!" My heart just sank!!!

Take care, it was great visiting your blog and picking up this recipe that I WILL try this summer, and have a great weekend!

NanaDiana said...

I wondered how those pies were to get out of crock pots-Now I know! As long as it tasted good-that's what mattered. Probably not something you would present to guests for dessert though

Glad you are safe and sound and I am so sorry about the Texas tragedy-xo Diana

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

i am a lover of pecan pies - love them. i need to try this. i must try this. yummy good i bet. thanks, for sharing. ( :

glad you are safe in Texas. so so very sad.

shannon i olson said...

well it looks great and I would eat it too, but good to know just because there is a crock pot recipe does not mean it is a good idea. Thanks for doing the test drive!!

xinex said...

This looks wonderful, BJ. I'm going to try the recipe but I think I will bake mine. Thanks!...Christine

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

Man that looks delicious. You are right though, why the Crock-pot? Same amount of work...pop in oven or pour in Crock-pot. The liner might help. I'd take piece oven or Crock-pot right now! I am going to be craving this!
Karen

Beth said...

I love pecan pie. Yours looks very good!

Michelle said...

This does look really good! Glad to see that it works!

Audrey said...

Pecan Pie ... my favorite but I only cook it for Thanksgiving or maybe Christmas. Just too rich and I eat too much. This one looks delicious. I should send you my Southern Pecan Pie recipe and let you try it, but not in a crock pot. Maybe the crock pot keeps the crust edge from getting too brown, but I cover mine with foil. Thanks for sharing.
Blessings,
Audrey Z. @ Timeless Treasures

Shelia said...

Hi BJ! Oh, I've never heard of crock pot pecan pie. This would probably be the only way I could make it. I've never had good luck with pecan pies before. No, I haven't heard of crock pot liners! The best thing is that it was good! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

kitty said...

I just made a pecan pie, but in the oven. I never heard of doing it in the crock pot, bj. Mine even leaks in a pie pan and is hard to get out, but I never mind, either. It's my fave!!

Marigene said...

Doesn't matter if it came out looking like a perfect piece of pie...it only matters whether it tastes good!
Have a great weekend, BJ...

susie @ persimmon moon cottage said...

That pecan pie looks yummy, before it was baked, too. I am like you in that I snitch pecans out of the syrup mixture and eat them as I make the pie. Does the crust get crisp on this crock pot version?

You really should try the Reynolds crockpot/slow cooker liners. I discovered them at a time when I was plagued with severe carpal tunnel. They are very similar to the oven cooking bags, except shaped wider for the crock pot. They save you from having to juggle that slippery, heavy crock around while trying to get it cleaned. I always cook stuff that is hard to clean out of it, so those liners were a real help.

I think that having to cook pecan pies in the oven (that heats our whole house up) is Nature's way of keeping me from eating too many of them in a year.

middle child said...

I was going to say......just throw a pint of ice cream (vanilla bean) into the crock pot and grab a couple of spoons!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Oh wow, bj-- this look delicious! I imagine that using a crock pot to make a pie is a convenience if you don't have an oven or your oven is full of other things cooking during a holiday. I have seen crock pot liners --that is a good idea to use one.

So glad you weren't near the explosion! My prayers are with West, TX

Debbie said...

1. YEP. My mom taught me to set the measuring cup on the counter. Our cooking class teacher always put hers on the window sill. Every time I measure a liquid, I wish I had a good old fashioned window sill. I don't. Maybe that's why I am not a great cook. Ha!

2. Nope. I had never heard of a crockpot liner either. If I make this pie, I shall use one.

3. I am about to die to try this pie.

4. I didn't mean to rhyme just now, but how cool that I did.

The French Hutch said...

The explosion in West, TX is terrible bj. I’m so sorry for this tragic event in your state.
This pie looks delicious. I’m with you, I wouldn’t cook it in a crock pot just pop in the oven but I can see if your don’t have time to watch it the crock pot is a good way to go. I’ve never heard of a liner either, who knew.
Great pics too. Happy Weekend.

Theresa said...

Oh it looks yummy and I will use my crockpot for just about anything:) Have a blessed day and thanks for sharing your recipe and smiles! HUGS!

Beverly said...

I am keeping Texas in my prayers.

And, oh my! That looks delicious. I'll be right over.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/From Harvest To Table said...

Glad to hear that you were not near the explosion in West, Tx. So many bad things happening right now.

Pecan pie is my favorite pie. I think I will stick to baking it in the oven :-).

Patty Patterson said...

I use crock pot liners for things like soups and stews. Then when there are leftovers I lift them out and tie the top of the bag in a knot and put it in the fridge. To reheat I cut the bag and pour it into a bowl and pop it into the microwave and throw the bag away. The real joy in it, though, is not getting the crockpot dirty. With my rice cooker/crockpot - I don't use liners because it has a non stick coating and washes so easily I really don't mind. And for the most part, I use that now.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Pecan pie is my favorite dessert in the world! Now that I can't eat sugar...I haven't even tried to make one. I posted some cute pillows I saw at the mall today...and I thought of YOU! heehee! Sweet hugs!

Madeline's Album said...

Pecan pie was my husbands favorite. Baked one every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I still bake them for my children and grandchildren. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Oh this looks so good! Pecan pie is my hubby's favorite. I did know about the liners only because I saw a lady pick up a box of them once when I was looking for oven bags and they were nearby. So after she got what she wanted I, nosy gal that I am, looked at what she had picked up! That was my introduction to the liners.
Now, I have to go find something to snack on, that pecan pie has made hungry.
Have a great day and weekend!

Vee said...

I checked to be sure that you weren't near the terrible event in West Texas. Phew! So much going on this week I this country.

Oh I do love a pecan pie! Like you, I can't imagine why to bake it in the crockpot.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Nope, never heard of a crock pot liner either. Hmmmm..we must have been under the same rock, bj! :)

Wanda said...

This looks amazing! I am pinning your recipe. Also just so you know Blogger is trying my patience as well. I have had so many problems lately. Are they all on vacation???????

Designs By Pinky said...

Yup, I do know about crock pot liners, have some but have never used the.....keep forgetting:):) Not a fan of pecan pie though..............................

Pat Cantwell said...

BJ,
Think it might be getting a tad bit crowded under this rock...'cause I never heard of a Crock Pot Liner, either! Guess that's the one "new" thing I learned for today! Ha!
Your Pecan Pie might not have turned out as you had hoped...but "Mr.Ed" and I both adore Pecan Pie...Southern is the ONLY way, dear friend!!!
Have a marvelous weekend!!!
fondly,
Pat

Ginger Knox said...

Hi BJ, That pie looks awesome. Actually I pinned it from your sidebar.
I love pecan pie anytime and anyway. That said, I would probably stick to my tried and true oven baked. I agree it would be great for someone working outside the home and Alycia mentioned, summertime.
I do use crockpot liners. Great for getting rid of the mess left. Just take it out and throw in the trash. I always wipe down the inside anyway but no scrubbing or soaking. They can be found on the aisle with the wax paper, foil and ziploc bags.
It sure looks good, making me hungry. Hugs, Gi;nger

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

My mom swore by those crock pot liners, I've never tried them. She never made a pie though. It sure looks good, I wouldn't have cared one bit if it wasn't pie shaped!

Holly Lefevre (504 Main) said...

You have made my husband a happy man!

The HOME GIRL said...

This looks like a great recipe! I am glad it still tasted good, even though you had a hard time getting it out of the crock pot! I need to get some of those crock pot liners! Thanks so much for sharing this on the FESTIVE FRIDAY FIESTA!!! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us this week! =D
