This year they didn't turn out as pretty as usual because we didn’t have our DELUXE recipe that we usually use but, alas, they still ‘boasted’ about putting 12 lbs on me in 24 hrs (I have a love / hate relationship with pecan pie…I love to eat it and then hate myself for doing something so dumb as to sit and eat a half of pie in one sitting. What…? I am just being honest here)
So anywho….when I get the DEEEEluxe version of the recipe I shall update accordingly but here is the recipe we used for our Thanksgiving feast.
Now grab all your ingredients: Whole pecans, sugar, dark and light caro syrup (you can sub with just one or the other but we always split them between both), butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and deep dish pie shells.
Now grab a large bowl and whisk your eggs
Grab your caro syrup, measure, and pour it in.
Make sure you get all that good stuff in there!
Now add your sugar. Is it weird that I love this picture? Yes, apparently I get excited by pouring sugar and getting a good picture of it.
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh baby loooook at that sugggah!
Grab the butter and pop it in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds until its warm but not boiling. I had to let mine cool….oops!
*Note to self: 30 seconds is toooo long in your microwave*
Pour in your vanilla
Oh baby here is my one true food love in the world in its base form
Mix it all up with your mixer on medium. Warning…I am only using one beater cuz well….thats a whole nother blog post. Lets just say it has something to do with a three year old and her love of singing into my beaters….nuff said!
Hey, that’s how we roll round here. Feel free to use two :)
