Pecan Gooey Butter Pie

Yields1 Serving

It’s gooey, it’s buttery and starting with a store bought cake mix that couldn’t make this dessert any easier. This Pecan Gooey Butter Pie gets a little kick from cayenne…and a little spiced rum doesn’t hurt either!

 2 cups pecan halves
 1 (18-ounce) box yellow cake mix
 ½ cup pecan meal
 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  tsp cayenne pepper
 1 stick (4-ounces) salted butter
 3 large eggs
 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
 4 cups powdered sugar
 3 tbsp spiced rum, divided
 1 cup heavy whipping cream
 1 tbsp granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, pecan meal, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the butter for about 30 seconds. Add the butter and 1 egg to the cake mix and stir until well combined. Press the cake mixture into the bottom of a greased 9×13 glass baking dish.

In a large mixing bowl, beat 2 eggs and cream cheese until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of spiced rum. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the crust. Sprinkle the pecan halves over the surface

To serve, whip the heavy cream with the remaining 1 tablespoon of spiced rum and the granulated sugar to form soft peaks. Spoon Pecan Gooey Butter Pie onto a dessert plate and dollop with spiced whipped cream on the side.
