Maple Pecan Tart Filling is the perfect addition to any dessert table. With a wonderfully flaky crust and caramel inside with a nice crunch of roasted pecans. Indeed, this is a new spin on this vintage and classic Southern dessert. No holiday celebration can be without this iconic dessert. Take a trip down memory lane with this gluten-free version.
Needless to say, I am so pleased that I am able to recreate recipes that I used to eat and turn them into grain-free and refined sugar-free. Furthermore, it is a delight to be able to enjoy dessert with my family.
Incidentally, most Pecan Pie recipes are overly sweet to me. Nonetheless, this tart filling is sweet but not too sweet. It is, therefore, that I roasted my pecans before making this pie. At any rate, my husband doesn’t normally care for pecan pie because he feels it is too sweet. However, he really liked this tart. Nonetheless, I was really worried this pie would not turn out as most recipes have some sort of corn syrup in them. Nevertheless, I am beyond pleased that this recipe turned out and that it is super tasty. Use this filling with my Gluten-Free Tart Crust, Pie Crust: Grain Free, Dairy Free, Tigernut Flour Pie Crust, Almond Flour Crust.
This recipe makes filling for 4 four-inch tarts which I cut into two or one 8 inch pie. Tapioca Flour can be found at Amazon.
