Whipped Brown Sugar Pecan Pie

We’re thinking about moving.

The possibility of a bigger house sounds glorious, especially when our small starter home is going to be stretched to the limit once I pop out baby #3.

But with a bigger house comes bigger problems like holycraphowwillIcleanitifIcan’tevenkeepthishouseclean. There’s more square footage that can get destroyed, so it’s inevitable that I’d have to get a live-in maid.

Oh wait, that’s ME.

So, I guess I’m perfectly content staying in my small, but wonderful house for the time being.

I will say that having a smaller home makes it a whole lot easier to say no to toys and extra ‘things’ that tend to accumulate.

Just 2 weeks ago, we did a big organization day where we went through all my kids’ toys, keeping few and tossing or donating the rest.

I don’t think I mentioned this before, but Brooke and Blake are now sharing a room! I moved them together to make room for the baby so now it’s twice the crap in the half the space but now everything fits and it’s clean and together.

I am slowly working my way through the entire house, organizing, dusting and cleaning as I go. We just had our area rugs and couch cleaned on Tuesday. I even told my husband that for my birthday I want to get the car detailed so we can install the baby’s car seat into a clean van.

Pregnancy nesting. It really lights a fire under ya.

Whipped Brown Sugar Pecan Pie

I’ve been a little busy with this moving/cleaning/organizing daze that I forgot to post this pie recipe a few weeks ago when I was on my *leetle* pie kick. I’m craving everything that comes in a pastry shell, so pie has never really left my thought process since the week before Thanksgiving. This is my take on a super speedy pecan pie.

Yes, it’s not a traditional pecan pie, but oh my heavens it is mighty creamy and tasty! And did I mention a breeze to make? It’ll take you a good 7 minutes, literally.

Whip cream. Chop nuts. Mix with cream cheese and sugar. Pour into pie shell.

That’s basically it.

Feel free to snarf the whole thing down in a 36 hour period like I did. I won’t tell.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to steam clean some floors.

    I have made this pie every Thanksgiving for the past 3-4 years, when I first found the recipe. My family and I absolutely LOVE it. And now a holiday dinner is not complete without this pie. A new food tradition. So easy and perfect. I’ve also used a graham cracker crust.

    Absolutely delicious. Made it to take to the in-law’s Thanksgiving today. It was super easy to m as ke and was a hit! Personally, I could just eat it out of a bowl with a spoon without the crust lol. I think it would be delicious in a graham cracker crust as well. Definitely a keeper of a recipe.

    This pie is so luscious! You really can’t go wrong with the cream cheese/whipped cream base. It’s my go-to quick desert – I always have these (or some type of easy substitute) on hand! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    This looks a LOT like a pie I used to get at a buffet I used to work for when I was a teenager. I can’t remember the name of the pie (or company) for the life of me, but when I saw this picture, I got excited! The only thing different that I remembered was that the one from the buffet was baked, and the filling was firm. I’m thinking something like maybe a meringue or something? Anyone have any ideas on where I might find that recipe or even if you know the name of the pie? I’ve been seaching for years!

    Thanks! Can’t wait to try this one too since I LOVE pecans and maple syrup.

    Hi Lauren, I am newly arrived to your site; got a question. What is a “blind” baked pie shell??? This Whipped Brown Sugar Pecan Pie sounds marvelously delicious!

    Love your house and your kitchen. Sure you can stay a couple of years in it for now. Meanwhile, this pie…. I want to make it right away…..heavenly! Thank you!

    Looks super delicious especially since I love pecans. We recently moved this past summer to a new house which is twice as big as our old one even though we became empty nesters this fall. We kind of did it backwards, but are loving it. I remember reorganizing all the time in old house. In fact, my family has been shocked that I haven’t reorganized everything in the new house 🙂 Have fun organizing and thanks for the yummy recipe.

    I’m with Jackie – what would be a substitute for the maple syrup. I DETEST the flavor of maple but otherwise would like to try this as it sounds divine!

    1. Judy

      I was thinking the same thing. Other possibilities might be Karo Syrup, since there’s 3 different choices or perhaps Honey. Perhaps the Maple flavor might not be too strong with the other creamy ingredients. Or try 1/2 Maple Syrup and 1/2 other Syrup choice. I 💘 Love the Creamy flavor. **
