This is one of the best pecan pie recipes I have ever made. She does a couple of things differently like toasting the pecans, browning the butter for an even nuttier flavor, and using a vanilla BEAN not just extract. It is rich but not too sweet. I promise you will love it!

 

This one ties with the above:

Somewhere over in the Dessert Forum I've posted a Chocolate Fudge Pecan pie. Come Thanksgiving and Christmas time I get a lot of requests for that pie.

 

Sorry Cheryl-don't mean to hijack you nutz thread.

Squirrel,

 

You're Killing Me!

 

OK, I see all the stuff you make, but who the heck is eating all this food?  Are you supplying dinner for a homeless shelter?

meateater - I crack my own nuts. I have an electric pecan sheller.

 

Todd - I give most of it away, I know it sounds crazy, but I love cooking sooo much, it's my passion. I wake up thinking about what I can cook. I'm gonna start a blog one of these days!

 

Dutch - No problem, I am the queen of hijacking threads (with a little help from meateater and Bear). That pie recipe looks awesome by the way!

I give most of my stuff out too.  I figure if I ate it all, I would weigh a ton.

 

Some people have cats on their porch, but I picture your porch with neighbors waiting for handouts.

Have you given any thought to "Squirrel's Special Brown Sugar And Cinnamon Squirrel Nut Pie"???

Thanks for letting me steal your thread, Squirrel, and for the recipe!   I found your pie, Dutch, it's definately on the "doing" list!!   I think Bear could really be on to something there, too - so much YUM, so little time...   you guys are great, thanks for the help!!

Squirrel,   All jokes aside, I finally found one of them old style ''Texas inerta nut crackers'' That really works!  [the newer ones are made of PVC pipe

and ain't worth the trouble.]  The only complaint I have is the rubber bands break once in a while and you never remember to pick some up when U are out..Hemi..
