    Pecan Pie

    1 cup dark corn syrup
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3 eggs, slightly beaten
    3 tablespoons butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla (real not artificial)
    1 cup coarsely broken pecans
    1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell

    Combine syrup, sugar, and salt in saucepan.
    Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
    Boil 2 minutes.
    Pour slowly over eggs, stirring constantly.
    Add butter, vanilla, and pecans, stirring to mix well.
    Pour into unbaked pie shell.
    Bake in moderate oven (375° F.) for 50 minutes, or until done. (Pie should be completely puffed across top and firm.)
    Spread with sweetened whipped cream or dessert topping mix before serving if desired.

    Note: Filling may be baked in 8 to 10 unbaked 3 1/2 inch tart shells. Reduce baking time to about 35 minutes.

    Nuts may be toasted slightly for rich flavor. For this, simply heat nuts in a teaspoonful of butter in skillet over low heat. Stir until nuts are lightly browned.

    For the remembrance of the “A La Mode,” see “Nancy” on Monday, June 3, 2013.

    Thanks, but no thanks. The only pie I eat is French Canadian meat pie.

    It’s not quite the same as a chicken pot pie…It’s a pie of nothing but ground beef and pork. No gravy, no peas or other vegetable.

    Until minces became endangered, we used to have mincemeat pie around here.

    Heroes respect heroes. Cowards belittle the sacrifice of heroes. We know where Gary Brookins stands.

    Before I caught the pun, I was just about to go ballistic. I’ve always said asking if you want steak “with au jus” is like asking for pie “with a la mode” and here it is!

    Canadian Butter Tarts are a pecan free version of the pie (basically). They do, however, have raisins in the filling.
    My room mate thought it would be “gross”. BUT I insisted on him trying one. He screwed up his face (he’s 27 yrs old, btw) and took a bite. He chewed. Swallowed. Looks at me and said “That’s f*cking awesome! Why didn’t I try this before?” I replied – “you’re black, and your mom probably doesn’t know the recipe, and didn’t know herself that they were that good. It’s all about your childhood, and stuff.” He nodded, and told me to get more. LOL
