Ingredients1 uncooked pie crust
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. Karo syrup, dark
1 c. pecan pieces
1/2 c. margarine, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
This is a holiday favorite! Slow Cooker Pecan Pie Cobbler will take the place of all the time it takes to make a Pecan Pie in the oven. It’s EASY and delicious!
- In a 3.5 – 4 quart slow cooker, spray with nonstick cooking spray, or use a slow cooker liner.
- Place an uncooked pie crust in the slow cooker and press up the sides about 1/2 inch. (I use a boxed mix like this.)
- Combine the remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl until well blended.
- Transfer to the slow cooker, pouring over the piecrust.
- After one hour of crocking turn the crock one half way around, this will help the crocking to be more even, as most slow cookers crock hotter on the side with the dials.
- Cover. Cook on High for 2 to 3 hours.
NOTE: Check for doneness at 2 hours as one of my slow cookers only took 2 hours to make this while the other one took 3. Since all slow cookers crock differently, keep an eye on yours.

What is the best slow cooker to have?
Hello Sue! I have a couple different brands of slow cookers. I am happy to share a link with you from my website for your to view. The one that comes up first is a very nice one, but be sure to do a search for slow cooker, and several of my favorites will come up. Happy Shopping 🙂 http://amzn.to/18kRcpY
I have a 6 quart crock pot and was wondering if you could make this recipe in a 6 quart crock pot? If so, would I have to change anything with the recipe or change the cooking time? If you could you let me know I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi Randi.. the 6 quart slow cooker will be a little large for the recipe. You could possibly double the recipe! The rule of thumb is to have the slow cooker 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly. If you keep the recipe the same, I would start checking it in half the crocking time. 🙂
I have got to try this….looks so easy and delicious. Thanks for all the posts on good and easy foods.
What can be substituted for the white sugar?
Sounds like a great recipe-thanks for sharing.
Hi David, (Note: I deleted your e-mail for your privacy) You can substitution for 1 cup of white sugar can be one of the following: 1 cup brown sugar OR 1 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar OR 3/4 cup honey OR 3/4 cup corn syrup, or Stevia and other sugar substitutes. If using Stevia you will use much less than 1 c. It will be about 1/2 c.! Happy Crocking!
How do you check for doneness after 2 hours?
Looks great! Want to do this for Christmas. Can you use the refrigerated pie crusts?
Yes Kathy you can… Enjoy!
Yes you can! 🙂 Happy Crocking!
yes, how do you check for doneness?
What kind of boxed mix do you use and does this do better than Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust would in this particular recipe? Would like to make for my son.
Click on the Highlighted link on the recipe, and it will take you to the pie crust I use, but you can use the refrigerated crust as well. Enjoy!
What do you recommend for crocks that cook to hot? Seems like all of the new ones are like this? HELP?!
Andrea I would contact the manufacturer and see if they can give you some suggestions, or satisfaction. Hope this helps!
do you serve it from the crock pot or take it from the crock pot and put it in a container or on a plate??
Pam you can do it either way. If you use a slow cooker liner, you can lift it out and place in your pie plate, sliding it with your pie spatula. But I have also dipped it out with a spoon. Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
Can’t wait to try pie in the slow cooker! Wonder if I could sub apple or cherry pie filling?
Have those recipes on my website as well… Enjoy!
Margarine is bad for you. Why not go with butter instead.
Hi Kelly – you can absolutely sub butter. Thanks for your comment and Happy Crocking!
Can’t wait to try this pecan cobbler. I am going to try it first with Stevia since my husband is diabetic. Thank you for putting the substitution amounts. I guess I would check for doneness like a reguar pie. Merry Christmas.
Sounds absolutely delicious… can’t wait to make and try this.
Hey, this looks so good! I really want to try it but am in Scotland and need a wee translation! What is karo syrup?
Hi Gemma, Thank you for the question. Karo syrup is a corn syrup, and if you are unable to purchase this in Scotland, I am happy to share a recipe with you so you can make the syrup to make this delicious recipe. Agave would be another substitute for karo syrup! Hope this helps! 🙂 Happy Crocking! http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf21362042.tip.html
Could you use dark Agave in place of Karo syrup? Diabetic here! I hate to change recipes, but thinking this might work well.
Hi Jill, Agave can be used in place of honey or corn syrup, and it is used often. Great to post for others that watch their sugar! Thank you and Enjoy!
How do we check and see if it is done?
Gemma, golden syrup (Tate and Lyle , asda’ s own) will work just fine!
Do you put a paper towel under the lid to catch the condensation, or dies it matter?
Donna this recipe did not call for the paper towel method, but if you would like to do this, it sure wouldn’t hurt the recipe. Hope this helps! Happy Crocking!
I have a 5 quart slow cooker. Would this recipe work in that size?
Shelly you can make it in the 5 quart, but you would want to check it earlier than the time stated, as it will cook faster in the 5 quart. Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking! 🙂
I’ve seen several people asking the same question but there is no answer. How do you check for doneness please.
Julie I am happy to share with you, as I have shared with others, you would want it the consistency of a Pecan Pie. Enjoy! 🙂
I will already be substituting sugar for splenda. Im a controled diabetic and like to keep it that way lol..on that note what can I use to substitute the syrup?
Hi Anita, Jill ask the same question, so I’ll share with you too! Agave can be used in place of honey or (karo)corn syrup, and it is used often. Great to post for others that watch their sugar! Just know the Agave is not as thick as the karl, therefore the pie thinner? Thank you and Enjoy!
I will be making this today for our family Christmas party. With no substitions. Will rate after everybody has tried it. It looks great and I knew I had to try.
Recipe calls for dark corn syrup. Would the light corn syrup work instead?
It will work fine! Enjoy!
Hi Jenn. I made this tonight for a holiday party. I used 1/2 sugar & 1/2 Stevia; and I used Agave instead of dark Karo. My crock is 6 qts. so I doubled the recipe. I cooked on high for 4 hrs & the crust was very dark, not burned though. My thinking is the entire pie was only about 1 1/2″ thick. I thought it would be a lot more. Does that sound right??
I don’t like to use Karo syrup, what can you substitute for this? I would also do not want to use the pie crust, do you think this will turn out ok?
Hello Joyce, you can substitute with honey for the karo syrup, and you can eliminate the crust, but it will not be much like a cobbler. Please make this recipe your own, and if you would, please post back and let us all know how it turned out. Enjoy!
Do you cook pie on high or low?
I crocked this on High and mine was done in a little less than 2 hours, and it is OH SO GOOD! 🙂
Does this recipe taste just as good fresh out of the crockpot as it would if it cooled down and eaten at a later time?
Keri, my family loves this recipe, but my hubby likes it warm, so I just stick any leftovers (if any) in the microwave for him. It is just as good as it was right after I dished it up from the slow cooker. Enjoy!
How many servings does this make? 8 like a regular pie?
Hi Mary, It depends on the serving dish that you will be using, as pictured I used a Crystal Sherbet/Champagne shallow bowl, and with this serving size you would be able to get 8 servings, but if you use a larger bowl/dish, it may only serve 6. Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking!
If I use the box pie crust, would I mix it like the instructions on the back or just pour the powder mix in the crockpot?
