The Ultimate Pecan Pie
I never thought anyone could love pecan pie more than I do. I make it every chance I get, no matter the season, and have tried so many recipes my head would explode if I wrote about them all.
The point is I thought I had seen everything when it came to pecan pies. I was proven wrong when I stumbled upon this monstrosity of a recipe: the 20-sided modular icosahedron pecan pie.
It’s a mouthful to say, but it’s even more of a mouthful to eat. 20 triangular pecan pies come together to form the final product. It’s pie on pie on pie, or pie-ception, if you will.
The “icosahedron” is the name of the shape the pie forms, a 3-dimensional module that will remind you a LOT of a 20-sided die if you’ve ever played Dungeons & Dragons.
If you want to venture on making one of these babies, turkey tek from Instructables has got you covered. It takes a lot of math, a lot of patience, and some very good magnets…
How It’s Done
There are 7 steps involved in making this crazy pie. Laying out and cutting the pieces, folding and riveting the sides, attaching the magnets, baking a test pie, followed by 19 more pies, re-epoxying the magnets, and finally assembling the pie to enjoy.
The aesthetic of the pie is huge in making this pie a success, but you also want it to taste amazing. A 20-sided modular icosahedron pie is only as good as it tastes, after all.
I have a couple of favorite recipes. You can check out Joanna Gaines’ amazing pecan pie recipe by clicking here, or if you want a bit of a kick, check out our Fireball pecan pie by clicking here!
Do neither of those fit what you’re looking for? Not a problem. Check out the YouTube video by Food Wishes down below! Regardless of which recipe you choose, I hope you have fun making this crazy pie.
