  • 9 oz. prepared shortbread or graham cracker crust The larger crust size! There are 6 oz., smaller crusts, the 9 oz. is better here
  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 2 - 3.4 oz. boxes instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tsp. butter extract optional
  • 2 1/2 cups chopped toasted pecans divided
  • 8 oz. container Cool Whip or whipped topping thawed, and additional whipped topping for garnish, if desired


  • In a large bowl, whisk together sweetened condensed milk, milk, dry pudding mix, butter extract, and 2 cups toasted pecans (reserving 1/2 cup for garnish).
  • Fold in whipped topping.
  • Spread into prepared pie crust. I use a larger, 9 oz. crust, but sometimes the smaller, 6 oz. crusts are easier to find in stores. This can make two smaller 6 oz. pies.
  • Refrigerate til set, at least 2 hours.
  • If desired, garnish with additional whipped cream and remaining toasted pecans. Cut and serve.
