Alabama Peanut Pie

Peanut Pie is an all-time favorite in my home. For my family, this has become a traditional holiday pie.


  • 1 9- inch pie shell baked
  • 1/3 dark brown sugar packed
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup Light Alaga Syrup (Yellow Label Golden Syrup)
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 cups dry roasted peanuts


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, add brown sugar. Scrape seeds from the vanilla bean, flour, cinnamon, salt, and cayenne pepper into the brown sugar and whisk all ingredients until well incorporated.
  • In a small bowl, add eggs and whisk until frothy.
  • Add eggs to the brown sugar mixture. Add syrup, vinegar, and butter to eggs and brown sugar mixture and incorporate until well blended.
  • Pour peanuts into the fully baked pie crust. Pour filling over the peanuts and shake just a bit to get rid of any air bubbles in the mixture.
  • Bake pie for about 40 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes. Serve with ice cream or vanilla whipped cream.
