Gluten Free Pecan Pie

13 Jul

Last Thursday was Beaters Hut Bakers Club. This Months Theme was American in honour of 4th July.

I contemplated for a while on this topic but didn’t know if my thoughts were to obvious with things like Pumpkin Pie. I emailed an American Lady I’ve got to know about any suggestions she might have and my thoughts.
After her helpful reply I settled on Pecan Pie.

Gluten Free Pecan Pie

200 g [7 oz] Butter
175 g [6 oz] Gluten Free Plain Flour
A Pinch of Salt
3 Eggs
15 ml [1tbsp] Milk
175 g [6oz] Demerara Sugar
150 ml [1/4 pint] Maple Syrup
2.5ml [1/2 tsp] Vanilla Essence
175 g [6oz] Pecan Nuts, halved

Whisk 150 g [5oz] butter.

Gradually stir in the GF Plain Flour and salt; beat well after each addition.

Add 45ml [3 tbsp] cold water and mix thoroughly with hands. Knead lightly with extra flour, as this pastry is VERY sticky to handle. Chill.

Roll out the pastry and use to line a 23 cm [9 inch] ovenproof flan/pie dish; flute the edge. Chill the case while preparing the filling.

Beat the eggs and milk together.

Boil the sugar and syrup together in a saucepan for 3 minutes.

Take the syrup off the heat allow to cool for a few seconds, then slowly pour on to the beaten eggs and stir in 50g [2oz] butter and vanilla essence.

Use half the nuts to cover the base of the pastry case, spoon the syrup mixture over and cover with remaining nuts.

Bake in the oven at 220 C [435 F] for 10 minutes.
Then reduce the heat to 170 C [325 F] and cook for a further 45 minutes, until the filling is set.

You can serve warm or cold. For all of my recipes using flour I use Doves Farm Gluten Free Flour it’s by far the best! And if your not wanting Gluten Free then use normal flour.

BHBC was a great evening chatting to new people and even the added bonus of gluten free yummies.
