Apple Pecan Pie at Chasing Delicious

Apple Pecan Pie

Fall is here, the holidays are right around the corner and this Thursday we will all likely be gorging ourselves on pie. Here is the pie I’ll be serving for Thanksgiving. What will you be serving?

Apple Pecan Pie: This recipe is a cinch. It’s a classic sweet and tart apple pie with pecans thrown in for a homey crunch and nutty flavor. Depending on how sweet or tart you’d like your pie you can choose a different apple. Sweeter apples like fuji will make a sweet pie with a soft texture. Tart apples like Grannysmith will lend a tarter, less sweeter bite and tends to add a crispy texture. I prefer apple varieties that fall in the middle, such as the Pink Lady apples.



Pie Dough: This is my standard flaky pie dough recipe but with a third of the flour replaced with ground pecans, originally used for my Spiced Wine & Pear Hand Pies. The ground pecans gives the dough a slightly sweet, nutty flavor and adds a little crunch.

    Oh my word. You have left such simple instructions that I can not resist to try.

    Good post! =)

  • bianca @ sweet dreaming

    such a delicious twist on apple pie!

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci)

    I love the pecans in this pie! Gorgeous lattice!

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

    When I think of a pretty pie, I pretty much picture this! Lovely!

  • Debie Grace

    That’s a good one!!

  • Cassie | Bake Your Day

    This is fabulous! I adore classic apple pie but will take an excuse to add pecans to it any day!

  • Alison @ Ingredients, Inc.

    looks amazing Russell! I may have to add this to my Thanksgiving list

  • Joanne

    I love that with this, you kind of get two pies for the price of one!

  • Jeanette

    Happy Thanksgiving Russell! One of my boys loves apple pie, so I know he would love this!

  • Fork and Whisk

    You have some of the best pictures in the blogging game. That pie looks awesome. Great job.

  • Cookin' Canuck

    That is one gorgeous pie, Russell! And the pecan pie crust? Brilliant!

  • thelittleloaf

    This looks like the perfect pie! I love the lattice on top and the idea of using pecans in the crust is gorgeous.

  • Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

    Oh very nice! I like that pecan crust.

  • Carolyn

    That is one gorgeous pie, Russell!

  • Brian @ A Thought For Food

    Woah! This looks like one mean pie, Russell! Hope you have a fun Thanksgiving (even if you don’t always remember what day it is ;-))

  • JulieD

    So beautiful, Russell!

  • Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies

    I still haven’t decided what to make for dessert, but this is now a contender! I’m getting tired of pumpkin everything, so apple would be a nice change.

  • RavieNomNoms

    There is just no comparison to a gorgeous apple pie during Fall…gorgeous.

  • Sommer@ASpicyPerspective

    Oh my lands! Russell I wish you would come to my house for Thanksgiving… and bring THIS!

  • Noemi

    Uaoh! This recipe is very cute :)
    So it is a wonderful pie.



  • Rachel

    This pie looks so delicious! The crust is something I have to try for sure! I work in a bakery where we get a free pie out of making over 400 from scratch with just myself, another gal, and my 74 year old boss. So I still get a 100% homemade pie without having to find the time to make it at home! Have a wonderful holiday!

  • Christian Rene Friborg

    The number of apple pie recipes posted online are overwhelming, but this one’s one of my favorites!

  • Jacqueline @How to be a Gourmand

    A beautiful pie – done very professionally Russell.
    Wishing you, your family and friends a Happy Thanksgiving :-)

  • Stephanie

    Two traditional flavors in one crust! This looks so so tasty

  • Crystal Clark

    This pie looks awesome! Definitely bookmarking it for future so I make sure to make it. :)

  • Jackie

    It’s funny, I normally don’t eat apple pie but because of the pecans I’m definitely tempted by this one!

  • shelly (cookies and cups)

    I love this! Saving this one for Christmas…also love your cute little turkey in your logo!

    [...] Apple Pecan Pie from Chasing Delicious - Pecan and pumpkin are the priority during Thanksgiving but Christmas it’s time for the fruit pies. Pecans in the dough? How can that not be fabulous? [...]

  • propaganda hair group austin

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having
    a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
