Magic Apple Pecan Pie

Paula Nemzek for KCTS 9 Cooks

Short and sweet – this easy and delicious dessert is a hybrid of apple and pecan pie, with a hint of custard inside. Best of all, it comes together in minutes and makes its own crust as it bakes! Perfect for the holiday table.

Serves 8

  • 2 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 11/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pecan halves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter the inside of a 9-inch pie pan.

In a large bowl, mix prepared apples with remaining ingredients and stir well. Spoon mixture into pie plate, and bake for one hour.

Let cool slightly before serving.

I so enjoy your recipes. I would suggest that you enlarge the type size. As we gently age, the small type is a problem. Also, it would be beneficial to have a snapshot of the finished product on the printed page. I carefully print and put your recipes in a binder. Having a photo is a boon.

I agree about the font size, but what I do is copy and paste into my Word program and then make it whatever size I want.

Yes, I do agree. I realize I can adjust size when I print it, but - I need to be able to read it online first. Thanks for your attention and help.

I enjoy your recipes too, and print those I like for my recipe binder, but I completely agree with the above comment by Carol Hart. It would be so helpful if the type size was enlarged. I've mentioned this before in a comment and I truly hope you will do this. Many of your readers will call blessings down on your head!!!!

Mary and Carol, you can copy and paste the recipes into a blank Word document and then change the font into whatever size works best for you. That's what I do

I made this using staple ingredients that I had on hand and it was wonderful. It looked exactly like the photograph. I love spices and added a touch of nutmeg, ginger, allspice and cloves. Additionally, I substituted 1/8 cup brown for some of the white sugar. Just my preference. Finally, I baked it in a glass pie plate for a nice presentation. I love your recipes. Thank your chefs of KCTS!

That's too much sugar. I think it should be 3/4 cup flour and 1/3 cup sugar.

Delicious recipe! How about adding a print button instead of making people copy and paste? Control P works, but weird headers print out as well.

Thank you for your comment, Adele! If you would like to print our recipes, the easiest way is to select the print option in your web browser!

This is so easy and so delicious. I find that 30 mins is long enough bake time. I don't dare to leave it in for an hour!
