French immigrants invented pecan pie soon after settling in New Orleans and were introduced to the unique nut by the native Quinipissa and Tangipahoa tribes. Early recipes used local sugarcane syrup or a blend of molasses and reflect the local farming of the South Louisiana cane fields. A proper pecan pie is a true test of a pastry chefs skill by getting the the texture and thickness of the crust just right to hold the sticky filling in place.

Located in the heart of New Orleans’ Garden District, Commander’s Palace has been serving its famous Haute Creole cuisine since 1893. Emeril Lagasse, Paul Prudhomme, Jamie Shannon, Tory McPhail, and now Meg Bickford are just some of the chefs who have led the kitchen over the years. This New Orleans restaurant, known for its garlic bread, turtle soup, and seafood gumbo, is the winner of seven James Beard Foundation Awards.

To Serve

If you plan on eating within 1-3 days, store pie in the refrigerator upon arrival. These pies are delicious and there are several ways to go about reheating them. Remove the pie from the box and fully unwrap the pie so no plastic wrap or bubble wrap remains. Leave the pie in the aluminum baking dish. If your pie is frozen, you have some options:

Defrost in the Microwave:

  • As a Chef’s tip, place the whole pie, including the aluminum baking pan, into the microwave on defrost setting and set the timer accordingly. The pie weighs 2.75lbs so set your defrost setting accordingly. Yup, that’s right, you can microwave aluminum as long as it’s round with no sharp corners.
  • Once thawed, you can cut the cold pie more easily by turning the pie upside down on a cutting board and cutting through the bottom crust, through the filling then the edge of the pecan crust last. *This keeps the pecans exactly in place and ensures each one of your pie slices has a crisp sharp point.
  • After slicing the pie, you can flip the pie pieces right side up.
  • Continue to heat in the microwave on full power for 30 seconds to 1 minute per slice depending on your microwave.
  • Or you can place the cut pieces in an oven at 300*F for about 10 minutes, or until they’re warm all the way through. Test for an internal temperature of 145*F before consuming.

Defrost in the Refrigerator:

  • You can defrost the whole pie in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • Preheat the oven to 250*F.
  • Re-bake the defrosted whole pie at 250*F until it’s hot all the way through and very fragrant. Test for an internal temperature of 145*F before consuming.
  • Cut the pie pecan side up from the center out to the crust edge. Be very careful when you get to the crust so you do not break off pieces of the crust edge.

Plating:
Place your pieces of sliced pie onto a serving dish. Whether you used the microwave or the oven, we like a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and suggest you do the same!

You can easily pass this off as your own homemade pie and your guests won’t feel bad about sitting down to eat the entire thing before getting up from your table to thank you.

Everything was packaged well and traveled well. it's a great value for the money - your price point makes most of your service a special occasion thing; but it makes it worth the extra dollars.

Showed up on time and was still frozen just like advertised. It was a gift for a co-worker and the day it arrived was the one day she was working away from home. I was worried that it would be ruined by the time she got home. However it was still frozen when she finally got home.
