Looking for a yummy dessert to bring to Thanksgiving? Try Annette’s amazing Butter Pecan Cream Pie using our new seasonal flavor, Butter Pecan Milk! Follow the simple steps below to try it for yourself:

Crust (Layer 1)
– 1 cup flour
– 1/2 cup butter (softened)
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Whipping Cream
– 3 cups Volleman’s Heavy Cream
– 4 tbls. powered sugar
– 2 tsp vanilla extract

Cream Cheese Mixture (Layer 2)
– 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
– 1/2 cup powered sugar
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 3/4 cup chopped butter pecans

Pudding (Layer 3)
– 2 boxes instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz)
– 2 cups Volleman’s Whole Milk
– 1 cup Volleman’s Butter Pecan Milk

1. Layer 1 (crust): Press ingredients into a sprayed 9×13 pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees, then let cool.
2. In a large mixing bowl, make the whipped cream by whipping Volleman’s heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together on medium-high speed until medium peaks form, about 3–4 minutes.
3. Layer 2: In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Fold in by hand chopped butter pecans and half of the whipped cream. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly across the top of the chilled crust. Return the baking dish to the refrigerator while you prepare the next layer.
4. Layer 3: In the same bowl, whip together both boxes of pudding mix, add whole milk and butter pecan milk. Whip until thickened, but still pourable. Spread evenly over the cream cheese layer.
5. Layer 4: spread remaining whipping cream over the pudding layer and sprinkle ¼ cup or a little more of the chopped butter pecans on top.
6. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving.

To make buttered pecans: Add 1 pound of pecan halves to a medium bowl with ¼ cup melted butter and 2 tsp of kosher salt. Mix until all the pecan halves are coated. Transfer the pecans to lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated 300 degrees oven for 15-20 minutes or until you can start to smell the pecans toasting. Allow the pecans to cool before chopping and adding to pie filling.
