Pecan Pie

I have made this recipe and it is decadent. Even better, I made it with fresh pecans that a friend gave me from her tree. My dad unwittingly shelled and snacked on some of them one evening while we watched TV. There is something magical about fresh food items versus prepackaged and OLD food. Even though pecans, walnuts, etc. are processed and moved to the store shelves as quickly as possible, they are still not just from the tree fresh, or even “picked up off the grass” fresh.

Pecan Pie

Cream 1/2 c butter

1/2 c sugar

Add 1/2 c white corn syrup

1/2 c maple syrup

3 eggs well beaten

Mix well. Add 1 c pecan nut meats, 1 tsp vanilla. Pour into 8″ baked shell and bake 1 hour or until knife point comes out clean in a moderate oven 325-350. Serve with whipped cream

    • Yes – it is not a thick pie but loaded with richness and flavor. Prob would be good with melted chocolate on top. :-)
