This White Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Pie features everything you love about traditional pecan pie – sweet, brown sugar gooeyness, but with melted white chocolate, white chocolate chips, and fresh, tart cranberries that provide bright, tangy fruitiness! This White Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Pie might as well be called Christmas Pecan Pie, and you need it for your holiday!
Okay, this is the last pecan pie recipe… for this year, anyway! I am done with pecan pie recipes for the season. This White Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Pie concludes my pecan pie extravaganza with a major bang though! This is one unforgettable pecan pie, and isn’t it so pretty?? The vibrant cranberries are beautiful!
I was on a roll with pecan pie recipes this year, I don’t know why, and this was such a natural idea to me. Who doesn’t love white chocolate, cranberries, and pecans together? And why can’t that be a pecan pie? It can – YAY! And here it is.
White chocolate melted right into the pecan pie gooeyness. A heap of fresh cranberries – the sugar takes the edge of their tartness, and they burst and bubble. They add fruity brightness, plus a gorgeous red hue. This White Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Pie also has a bunch of pecan halves, of course, because this is a pecan pie recipe after all.
One of my other favorite recipes with this trio of ingredients is these White Chocolate Cranberry Pecan Rice Krispie Treats. Those are so quick and simple, but they’re so dressed up and pretty compared to original RKTs, so they’re an awesome holiday version.
And for other pecan pie options (because I’ve got quite a lot), check out this Fireball Pecan Pie, German Chocolate Pecan Pie, Honey Pecan Pie, Bourbon Bacon Pecan Pie, Brown Butter Bourbon Pecan Pie, Dark Chocolate Molasses Pecan Pie, Chocolate Espresso Pecan Pie, and Orange Coconut Pecan Pie. I know, that’s a lot of pecan pies. Believe it or not, I haven’t exhausted my list of ideas for pecan pie variations yet! Until next year though… 🙂
