Original recipe makes 1 deep dish pie Change Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) Line a deep dish pie pan with pastry dough. Line dough with foil, fill with uncooked beans or something similar (this will keep the sides from falling as it bakes). Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  2. Reduce oven temperature to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  3. In a large sauce pan, combine pecans, brown sugar, white sugar, cream and butter. Cook until it reaches 230 degrees F (110 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.
  4. Remove foil and beans from pie shell. Pour praline mixture into pie shell.
  5. Bake at 200 degrees F (95 degrees C) for 20 minutes. I cover the edges of the pie with aluminum foil so crust won't burn. Serve warm with whipped topping, if desired.

So I followed the instructions and my crust was under baked and my filling was not set. I threw it back in for...15ish min. at 300. Maybe even a little longer. Left it out all night and then it was set. I did have left over filling because I didn't have a deep dish crust and I put it over ice cream. Amazing. I topped it with whip cream with a little chocolate Godiva liquor and a little sugar. I am certain it would have gone great with the pie. My dog ate the entire thing off the counter. Lame. I will have to do it again, lol.

There is something wrong with the cooking times to this recipe. The crust was very underdone I had to then cook the pie for much longer to finish off the crust. then the candy had cooked too long. i would prebake the crust longer next time

I made this as a treat for a holiday party I hosted. Some thought it was too sweet, which I could agree with, but I liked that. It lasted quite a few days (since one slice at a time was fulfilling), which was great!

This pie is incredible, however, I did cook the crust longer, I also boiled the sugar mixture a little longer and I put the oven at 300*. I also have found that it sets up very well if you refrigerate it after it is cooked and has cooled, just know that when you heat up a slice in the microwave it doesn't take very long. This is great served with vanilla ice cream! It really does taste like a prailine. My husband's favorite!

Absolutely delicious! I made mini-pies in my cupcake tins and, while they needed to bake a bit longer than the recipe called for, they are amazing. One of the best recipes I've made in a long time.

I love this pie. I had never tried praline pie and this recipe definitely made me want to try it again. Thanks!

My nine year old son made this recipe for our local 4th of July pie-baking contest last year and won a bronze medal! There was hardly any left over for us to try after all the judges had a "taste", but it was like eating carmel! He is making it again this year...hope for a gold.
