Jill recently had a birthday and she sent me the recipe for a celebration appropriate Pink Pecan Birthday Pie. The photos below are by me and the recipe + post are from Jill. Enjoy!!
Pink Birthday Pecan Pie
For the crust:
3 cups pecans
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3 TB sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup coconut oil
6 to 10 TB water
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Blend pecans and flour in a processor. Add sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Then add coconut oil. Add water as needed, if dough needs more bind. Turn dough out of food processor and press dough into a pie pan. Trim the excess. Refrigerate for 15 minutes covered in plastic wrap. Bake 15 minutes. Let cool then chill til cold. For the filling and
1 pint strawberry ice cream
1 cup pecans, chopped
2 TB butter
3 TB brown sugar
1 cup raspberries
1 pint heavy cream
3 TB powdered sugar
Spread ice cream evenly across crust. Place in freezer for two hours. Meanwhile, make the candied pecans by heating the butter and pecans over medium heat in a small pan. Add the sugar and stir until caramelized. Spread on a piece of wax paper and let cool. Next make the raspberry whipped cream by mixing the berries, the sugar, and the cream in a metal bowl and whipping using an immersion blender. When pie has set, top the ice cream with the whipped cream. Sprinkle with candied pecans. [/recipe]
