Pecan Pie

My life is NOT "Spinning Out of Control" ... at least, not today.  Somedays it does feel that way but today - calm and quiet.  Our family Thanksgiving Dinner was yesterday. Kid#2 and husband have gone out of town for the weekend. Goofy2 (my sister) and her family came up from southern Florida for the day. Due to work schedules and such, we moved our celebration to Tuesday.  So ... not only is my cooking all done ... it's all eaten too!

Again, My Cute Husband says ... best pecan pie, ever!  By request, here's the recipe ......

3/4 cup Karo syrup
3/4 cup Log Cabin maple syrup
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine the above ingredients and mix well.
3 beaten eggs
Mix well
Pour into a prepared 9" unbaked pie shell.  I use the Pillsbury rolled up pie crust.

Sprinkle with 1 cup of shelled pecans.  I do NOT sprinkle.  I place each one on the filling, starting from the center and working out.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Cover the outer edge of the pie crust if it starts to get too brown.  The center should NOT jiggle when the pie is done.
Cool before serving or it will be too runny.
Serve with whip cream OR vanilla ice cream.


AND ...
because if wouldn't be MY blog without some sort of OOPS ...

This was my Thanksgiving fail ... almost.  I pulled this out of the cupboard yesterday and was shocked to see that it is NOT cranberry jelly.  Thankfully, as it was Tuesday, the grocery store was open and My Cute Husband made a mad dash to the rescue.

I don't even like beets.

I love beets! And Pecan Pie. Hope you second Thanksgiving Day is just as nice at the first.
