Love this mix of an apple pie & a pecan pie. It is perfect for Thanksgiving & Christmas

I’m a little bit apple, and I’m a little bit pecan pie. Sing it Donnie and Marie.

If an apple pie and a pecan pie had a baby, this whole pie would be their baby. I took my Mom’s pecan pie recipe and combined it with my apple pie recipe to come up with this unique twist on a healthier and less sugar Apple Pecan Pie. Don’t get me wrong. This is not a “No” sugar recipe. It has corn syrup, not be confused with high fructose corn syrup. It is just regular old light corn syrup. That is what gives it that pecan pie feeling.

It is the best of both worlds. Apple Pie and Pecan Pie seem to be the champs of the Thanksgiving and Christmas pie season. I am thinking this Apple Pecan Pie is going to give them a run for their money. While it is lighter, you may still need to go for a run afterwards.

I adore this pie. Best pie recipe.

Try something new with your family.

  1. Apple and pecan is such a classic autumn flavour, isn't it. This looks like a delicious pie for feeding a crowd.
  2. Thanks for this lower carb pie recipe. It will be used for Thanksgiving!
  3. This looks super delicious! And I love that you're lowering the sugar. I make all my baked goods with as little sugar as I can get away with-- when you have fruit and nuts, they should be what shines!
  4. Anything with less sugar goes down well with me. Especially if it's a delicious fall dessert like this one!
  5. I have a bag full of fall apples that are waiting to make their way into this pie recipe.
  6. my two favorites in one pie...this is a brilliant idea :( Happy Halloween
  7. I know what I'm making for the holidays!!! I've never added apples to a pecan pie before but this sounds like such a delicious twist on a classic!

      Thanks Taylor. The sweetness of the apples matched so well with the pecan pie and easily let me cut out some of the sugar.
  8. You had me at PECAN! My very favorite nut. As a kid in Florida we had a pecan tree. All we needed was a rock and we had an unlimited supply of pecans. Thanks for this recipe. :)
