Give your pecan pie a little twist by adding cream of coconut… the result is AMAZING!! Your pie will be extra creamy with a light hint of coconut. It’s my new favorite pecan pie recipe and it will be yours soon too!
So this is another recipe given to me by my cousin Mitchell, THE incredible pie maker. And just like the last pie I made, this one is crazy good too! My cousin is currently studying at UF on a scholarship majoring in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Biomolecular Engineering. What a mouthful that is! Not only is Mitch an incredibly genuine person who loves his parents and family, he’s a hard-working, honest, GQ looking guy with Christian values and morals. Guys like him are rare, I know, but they DO still exist! I, for one, am married to one! Even though Mitch chose an incredibly difficult major he dreams of owning his own pie shop one day! I think it’s so funny that someone who chooses an incredibly difficult major and career path longs for simplicity and creativity. I believe him though. He’ll do it. He’ll have his own shop and it will be uh-mazing!! I know it!!
This pie is creamy and light. Using cream of coconut does not interfere with the texture of the pie. There aren’t any coconut flakes, just added creaminess and flavor. I think the coconut compliments the toasted pecans perfectly. It’s soooo good! You have got to make this for the holidays! You’ll be so happy you did! Did I mention it’s SUPER easy too?!
