Blue Ribbon Pecan Pie






I love to make pies!  I love rolling out the dough, filling it up with something delicious and the smell that comes from the oven.  I never made a pecan pie before so when I saw it in the newest cookbook Hometown Christmas by Gooseberry Patch, I couldn't wait to make it.  This recipe is so simple, it only takes a few ingredients, and you can whip it up in no time at all.  You'll find all kinds of wonderful recipes in Hometown Christmas.  It features Breakfast with Santa, Sledding Party Warmers, Old-Fashioned Christmas Dinner, Open House...You're Invited, Tree-Trimming Treats, Slow-Cooker Comfort Foods, and Coming Home for Christmas.  Not only will you find lots of festive recipes there's also merry making tips and warm holiday memories 

Make sure you enter below to win a copy of Hometown Christmas and there's a gift from me too.  Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!




 Ingredients are as follows: 

1 (9 inch) pie crust 
1/2 C pecan halves (I crushed mine up because of the kids)
3 eggs
1 C dark corn syrup
1 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees; grease a 9" pie pan. 

Place unbaked crust into pie plate and arrange pecans in crust; set aside. 


In a bowl, beat eggs well.


Mix in the corn syrup, sugar, vanilla and salt.


Pour mixture over pecans in crust.


Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce temperature to 325 degrees.  Bake an additional 30 minutes or until center of the pie is set (mine took about 55 minutes). 


Cool completely then slice, serve and enjoy! 


Gooseberry Patch has graciously offered a cookbook to one of you and I bought this adorable gingerbread cupcake kit and gingerbread bakery bags too.    

Contest Closed!  Congratulations...

  13. We have to keep alive our family tradition of making my Dad's fudge on Christmas Eve. My Dad, who passed away last summer shortly before his 99th birthday, came up with a special recipe for fudge as a soldier in WWII, and always made it every Christmas Eve even up to his 97th year. My sister made it last Christmas, which turned out to be Daddy's last ever, and we all plan to continue the tradition in our own families.

  18. My favorite Christmas was when my mom baked 250 cupcakes and let me decorate them in Christmas red and green sprinkles and then we took them to our local Headstart Children's Program and passed them out. That's what Christmas is all about to me. Giving. My mom now spends Christmas in Heaven but I continue to give!

  46. Every year at Christmas my family finds some crazy prop to get our pictures made with. Such as an elf hat, pop bottle glasses, bubba teeth, santa beard, etc. We then take an individual picture of every person wearing it (of course everyone gets their own bubba teeth) My niece will make a poster of these pictures and bring it the next Christmas get together. It is really fun trying to come up with something new every year. I know its a little crazy but lots of fun!

  95. This pie looks delicious! Our favorite is probably waking up extra early on Christmas morning, before going to my Grandparents for breakfast, and slowly opening our gifts while the sunrise while sipping special mocha latte my Mom always fixes the family. But candlelight and the glow of the tree. It's magical!
    Blessings,

  127. I love making butter cookies and sandtarts - recipes handed down through the family from the "old country". Growing up in PA, every Christmas Eve Mom would set our dining room table with cheeses and all kinds of meats and fruits and cookies and candies we made. She would have open house for all the neighbors to drop in on til the AM.. We were poor and dad was a policeman, but we shared what we had with our neighbors on our street and others that just dropped in. To this day, I do the same on Christmas Eve and most usually have a houseful with my children and grandchildren. The grandchildren take plates of goodies to our neighbors. Just brings back memories of Christmas Eve and my parents. (neddys@aol.com)

  179. My favorite Christmas tradition is going to my moms house and eating chocolate pie that she makes especially for me. I cant wait to go there this Christmas. (I liked and followed all that was offered) Happy Holidays to you and yours.
