CommonGround volunteer Leslie Boswell shares her recipe for Crustless Pecan Pie with Pure Nebraska viewers.

Crustless Pecan Pie – for One


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup pecan halves


  • Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  •  In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the egg and sugar until well mixed.
  • Add the melted butter, maple syrup,vanilla, flour, and salt and whisk until combined.
  • Spread pecans evenly inside a lightly buttered 10-ounce ramekin.
  • Pour the pie filling over the pecans and place the ramekin on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any possible spills.
  • Bake the pie for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned. Remove the finished pie from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool. The filling will continue to set as it cools.



I usually allow the pie to cool for about an hour. Enjoy it warm or allow it to cool longer if you prefer.
