Zooey Deschanel's Mom's Pecan Pie Aired July 11, 2016

From a slow-cooker pecan pie, to a celeb pecan pie, to a “pecan” pie that is nut-free – we’re sharing some of our favorite recipes for this sweet and nutty dessert!

No. 1: Zooey Deschanel's Mom's Pecan Pie

Zooey Deschanel’s family recipe for a classic Southern treat is heavy on the pecans and features a drizzle of molasses on top.

No. 2: Slow-Cooker Pecan Pie

For our third take on a pecan pie, Kelsey Nixon cooks her pecan pie in a crockpot – ingenious when you’re feeding a crowd and need the oven for another dish!

No. 3: Grant’s Nut-Free Pecan Pie

If you have any guests with nut allergies attending your gathering, this recipe delivers all the flavor of a pecan pie but with Rice Krispies instead of nuts! Who knew it was even possible? Watch to see how similar the end result looks to an actual pecan pie.

No. 4: Grant’s Pumpkin-Pecan Pie

Love both pecan and pumpkin pie? Our always-clever dessert guru Grant came up with this ingenious way to marry the two classic desserts.
