    My low level alarm went off yesterday in my sweet tooth. I was going to make a lemon Meringue but while building the crust I realized I didn't have that much patience left in me and pecan was much faster!!

    And then there was breakfast this morning! (w/ Blue Bell Ice Cream!)

    Recipe?

    Ms. Maida's Pecan Pie

    7 extra large eggs (I said it was good, not low calorie)

    1 ½ C Dark Karo Syrup (corn syrup)

    ¾ C Brown sugar

    1 stick Melted butter

    1 Tbs Vanilla

    1 pinch Salt

    1 C Chopped pecans

    9” pie crust

    Mix it all up pour into pie shell.

    Bake @ 425 for 15 mins, then reduce to 325 for 45 mins. It will puff up, it’s the cooking eggs. When the pie is done (set) all ow to rest till the cool. The top will drop back down to where you expected to me. If you don’t cool before cutting it will be a mess. Remember Patience!

    Notes:

    You can change the dark Karo and dark sugar to light Karo and white sugar but omit the vanilla.

    Prepare the crust and line pie pan first, after you break the eggs in a bowl for mixing, get a brush and paint the top of the crust with the egg. Makes it brown better!

    I also add some sugar to my pie crust but that’s another story.

    Looks great, Foamy. My absolute favorite pie. Stealing the recipe, need to compare to mine. I know I tend to use as many pecans as the crust will hold, then let the "sauce" fill in the gaps.
    For my money Dark Karo is the only way to go.

    Thank you

    Its hard to beat a piece a pie and a cup of coffee.

    Thank you

    You definitely need to try a piece. I have never had a bad piece, even the ones that had to be eaten with a spoon.

    Some good looking pies!

    Thank you

    I do just a few nuts, no teeth makes it hard to eat nuts. I dump my chopped nuts into the "sauce" and then pour it all in the pie shell. The nuts float up after getting covered in the "sauce", which crystallizes with sugar when baked. Nice candy covered chopped nut topping. Sister does hers like you do. But she much more frugal with her ingredients. LOL

    Thanks

    I try to keep vanilla ice cream in the freezer just for toppings... LOL I really prefer the French Vanilla Ice Cream but since Blue Bell has come back up making ice cream again, the french vanilla is a seasonal flavor only made in November. You can always get Homemade or vanilla bean, just not the french vanilla.

    Thank you Richie. I am glad you like it. I probably mess up as many as I make right, I am always fumbling around trying to make 'em better, taster, flakier, etc.

    Its all those pecan trees we have in the south. You should see my trees this year, the limbs are heavy with fruit with all the water ('course the fertilizer last winter was double dosed too!).
