Pecan Pie Soft Serve Recipe

Much like real pecan pie, this recipe can be altered to mimic your favorite pecan pie flavor. Add molasses or use dark corn syrup instead of light to give it a richer, deeper flavor for instance.  Perhaps a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, or even adding chocolate syrup to make it a chocolate pecan pie. 

This is a very rich, creamy soft serve that was a huge hit at home and the office. We made a few batches of it, and I'll definitely be bringing it to Thanksgiving dinner.

Pecan Pie Soft Serve Ice Cream

Pecan Pie Soft Serve Ice Cream Recipe


A delicious and oh-so-creamy pecan recipe for at-home soft serve ice cream makers, like the SX1000.


    • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
    • 1 1/2 cup half and half
    • 4 oz pecans (whole or chopped; you'll strain them out)
    • 3/4 c. brown sugar
    • 4 egg yolks
    • 3 tbsp light corn syrup  


    1. Bring milk, half and half, and cream to a simmer in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add vanilla and 4 ounces pecans, turn off heat, cover, and let steep for 1 to 2 hours. Strain through fine mesh strainer to remove vanilla beans and pecans.
    2. In a saucepan, whisk together egg yolks, sugar and corn syrup over medium heat until well combined. Whisk in milk mixture until yolk mixture is fully incorporated.
    3. Place pot over medium-low heat and cook, whisking frequently, until a custard forms on a spoon and a finger swiped across the back leaves a clean line, or until custard temperature reaches 170°F.
    4. Strain custard through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until cold, or overnight (it will thicken up in the fridge).
