EASY Toffee Almond Pie - this pie recipe is like a pecan pie but with almonds and toffee instead! It tasted so good we couldn't stop eating it!

Jordan watched The Breakfast Club for the first time a few weeks ago and it got me to wondering what other iconic movies I needed to show her. It was at that moment I really, really missed movie rental stores, like Blockbuster, and it got me to thinking about all the things Jordan is not going to know about the world when she grows up. Like:

Driving to the video store and browsing to find the perfect Friday night DVD.

Having to watch all the commercials.

What a “tape” is (either VCR or cassette).

How to dial a rotary phone.

How to memorize a phone number.

Also, since she’s my daughter, she’s not going to know how to cook, how to have only monkey bread OR cinnamon rolls at Christmas, or how to eat store-bought cookies. Or store-bought any dessert, that is. Most kids look forward to Walmart cupcakes and pies from Costco…not my daughter. She eats them “to be polite” but tells me later that mine are way better.

(Girl knows her place. LOL)

So, no matter how much I feel like buying store-bought anything for the holidays, I know I have to make stuff from scratch. Cookies, candy, pie…it’s all me people. So if I’m making it anyway, I may as well tinker with the original recipes, right?

I hope you just said yes to that question, because this pie is one of the best tinkering I’ve done in awhile: I turned pecan pie into toffee almond pie!

We all love pecan pie, right? It’s crunchy and sweet and gooey and perfect, but I got to thinking: why do pecans have all the fun? Several years ago I gave macadamia nuts a whirl and loved that pie so hard I decided to make yet another version. This pecan pie is actually an ALMOND pie, with toffee bits.

I started the base recipe with my mom’s Easy Classic Pecan Pie recipe. It’s got all the good stuff: dark corn syrup, sugar, eggs, pecans. I simply switched out some of the ingredients to fit the toffee and almond flavor profile:

Instead of dark corn syrup, I used light.

Instead of pecans I used slivered almonds.

And then I added toffee bits.

The result? PURE HEAVEN. Crunchy and creamy and perfectly sweet, toffee almond pie is my new favorite pie recipe. Move over pecan pie…you have a competitor in the neighborhood.

There are so many versions I can think of for this pie recipe. I’ve got another one coming up soon.

In the mean time, make, bake, then devour toffee almond pie!

Toffee Almond Pie

Toffee Almond Pie – an EASY pie recipe filled with toffee and almonds. It’s like a pecan pie but with almonds! Everyone loves this pie.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pie crust for a 9” pie, from scratch or a refrigerated pack of two
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup toffee bits
  • 6 ounces (about 1 2/3 cups) sliced almonds

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Place pie crust in a 9” pie plate and decorate the edges as desired. Chill until ready to fill.
  3. Whisk eggs, sugar, corn syrup, melted butter, salt, and cornstarch until smooth and combined.
  4. Place toffee bits in the bottom of the prepared pie crust, then place the almonds on top. Pour the pie filling over the top and let the pie sit for a few minutes to allow the almonds to naturally rise to the top. (It’s important the toffee goes in before the almonds because it will weigh the almonds down if it goes in on top of them.)
  5. Place the pie on a cookie sheet (in case of spillage). Cover the outer edges of the crust with a pie crust shield or strips of foil. Bake for 10 minutes at 425°F, then lower the temp to 350°F and bake for an additional 50-60 minutes, or until the almonds are very toasted and the pie is just a bit jiggly in the center. It will set as it cools. Cool completely before slicing.

  1. I really miss the days of going to Blockbuster on a Friday night and checking out the newest movies. Those were the days! I would love to munch of this pie while watching a movie, looks SO good, Dorothy!

  2. This is amazing. Thank you for having a pie that has no fruit in it, I didn’t feel like health food today! 

  3. Kids these days… sigh. They’ll never understand the joy of finally being able to connect their modem to the internet and hear “You’ve got mail!” 🙂 Thanks for sharing your gorgeous pie with us today – looks divine!

  4. The fact that you say this is your new fave pie, coming from you, that’s a ridiculously high claim to fame!! WOW.

    I know, kids these days won’t know how to do any of the stuff we did, or get the joy of getting to Blockbuster or a mom and pop video shop only to find out the 1 copy of the movie you had your heart set on for that Friday night had only been rented out. lol

  5. This pie looks so addicting. That gooeyness in the middle is driving me mad.

  6. I saw this on Yumgoggle and had to take a closer look! Pinned, and I promise you I’ll be making it myself soon. Looks amazing!

  7. Oh, the Friday nights at Blockbuster – it was a fun social scene! And a few years ago I found my old rotary phone that AT&T made me buy, and showed my then-10- year-old daughter how to dial. We plugged it in to the phone jack and she called my sister and shouted, ” Auntie Joyce, I’m calling you on a ROTARY PHONE!!!”  Sound quality wasn’t the greatest though.  Hey, this pie looks wonderful!

  8. Wow, this looks great! The toffee bits push it over the edge.
    And you forgot about 8 track tapes…oh, wait…that was before your time! 🙂

  9. What about maple syrup in place of corn syrup?

  10. As much as I love me some netflix, you are right, there is nothing like the commitment of a blockbuster rental!

    this pie. omg!! why dont we add toffee bits to regular pecan pie too? you’re onto something here.

  11. Going to blockbuster was half the fun on a Friday night!  Oh the good ole days.. but when it comes to this pie? Forget the good ole days and bring in the new! Yummy!

  12. My youngest daughter and I love, love, love pecan pie; however, my oldest daughter does not like pecans. I showed her the picture of this pie and she is excited to try it!! Thanks for the great recipe!!

  13. This Pie looks so ggod!
    Being in Europe, pecans are Sooooo expensive, sonusing almonds instead is what I do.
    I know the toffee bits are probably something you buy, but I can’t get that, can I cut some toffee in  bits instead??

  14. Love this twist to pecan pie! There are people in my family who aren’t fans of pecans. I need to try this!

  15. I love pecan pie, but almonds+toffee will always be greater than pecans. Can’t wait to try this!!

  16. GIRRRRRRL.

    Toffee bits. almond-y goodness. Oh gosh..oh man…this pie. I need it. PINNING.

    Also-here’s hoping my kids have the same problem Jordan does ;P And I LOVE Breakfast Club!

  17. Can you make this the day before and refrigerate?

  18. What brand of toffee bits do you use? I made it and LOVE IT, but did so without the toffee because I couldn’t find any.
