I'm talking DESSERTS sweet:) DESSERTS spelled backwards spells STRESSED! An email I received from friend S yesterday reminded me of that! Any justification I can find in eating some sweets, is okay with me. And stress, sisters, is validation to me:) lol!!!!!!! If you don't know anything about me by now......know that I LOVE SWEETS!! Any form, shape or fashion! Heck....I JUST LOVE TO EAT! Ask any of my family, friends or co-workers....up most priority!
So with that thought in mind, here is the recipe for Mom's pecan pie!
KT's Pecan Pie
3/4 stick of butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
1 1/2 c light karo syrup
2 c chopped pecans
2 regular pie crusts
Mix together the butter, sugar and eggs until creamy. Add syrup and vanilla flavoring. Then add the pecans. Pour into 2 ready made pie crusts.
Bake on 300 for 1 hour. Let stand until cool....unless you're like me and eat it when it's hot with a big 'ole slab of vanilla bean ice cream.
Umm Umm Good!! Lick your lips...eat the whole pie....GOOD! Too bad the thing is gone.....ya know the ones I made Thursday for son #1's school project.....are gone.....I sure would like to have another bite:) We cannot keep groceries around here. If prices continue to soar through the roof...we are going to have to resort to gardening, rationing and milking our own cow:) lol!!!!!!!!! Hubby returned some calf milk, a 50 lb bag, to the local farm store. The guy asked why he was returning it, hubby replied, "because I can't get my kids to drink it!" Here's your sign!! He was trying to be funny, but probably serious too! That liquid gold they call milk is outrageous!
