Before we get on with the sweet and savory Thanksgiving pecan recipes roundup, I need to address Pecan Sadness. A couple of months ago, Michael Procopio of Food for the Thoughtless posted on his facebook page that autocorrect had changed his reference to “Pecan Sandies,” a wonderfully crumbly pecan shortbread cookie, to “Pecan Sadness.” Many people commented with a giggle and then probably went about their lives. Not me. This phrase, “pecan sadness,” has stayed with me. Much in the same way turkeys get nervous in November, I’m pretty sure pecans get nervous as well. And while a one or two turkeys will escape with a Presidential Pardon, as far as I know, no president has ever issued a pardon for pecans. And just think of what they go through. They’re chopped, roasted, toasted, pan-seared, candied, glazed, pulverized and all manner of other violent actions are perpetrated against them in the name of a seasonal dish, be it sweet or savory. And while pecans are great in everything from salads to breads to desserts, surely we can all spare a thought for Pecan Sadness.

I have made a tribute video. Sadly there is no charity to which one may contribute to ease one’s guilt over the plight of the pecan, but we can at least watch and bear silent witness to the horrors perpetrated in the name of Thanksgiving. And if, even through your tears you drool just a little, I promise not to tell anyone.

Sweet and Savory Thanksgiving Pecan Recipes Roundup

Please, remember the sacrifices pecans have been making for hundreds of years. Eat them with the reverence their sacrifice deserves. And now here, arranged by course, are some wonderful pecan dishes you can make to serve at your Thanksgiving table. All I ask is that you take a moment to thank the pecans before you dig in.

A Note on How I Organized These Pecan Recipes: All the special diet recipes are in one place if their “special diet-ness” was a part of the recipe title or if the blogger tagged them as such. There very well may be other gluten-free or vegan options in other categories, so please use your best judgment. I tried to put the recipe where it best fit. Some of the recipes could potentially fit into multiple categories, but I tried to put each one into the category that best describes the recipes primary characteristic.

Thank you so much to all my blogging friends who are always so generous in sharing their own work. All the photos I used, I used with permission. Except, I must admit, the photo of the pecan sandies in the cookie section. Yes, those pecan sandies, the ones that started this whole thing. Michael Procopio took that photo. And if you’ve never had a pecan sandy (sandie?), you’re going to want to grab that recipe especially.

Thank you for spending some time with me today. I hope you find some recipes to grace your holiday table this year. Just don’t forget to thank the pecans.

      I just couldn’t let that phrase go! Pecan Sadness cracks me up every time I think if it! I knew just making a video about something maybe only I would find hilarious (thank goodness there’s at least one more of you out there, Shelley!), I had better post something useful along with it. My Bloggy friends are just the best and the most generous with sharing their work!
