It’s MLK day and I’m going to keep this REAL Short and even SWEETER!!
For MLK day the twins and I are planning what we’ve been doing the past 3 years, picking up trash of the side of the road! :/
Yep that’s what we do, and trust me some of these roads need it here in the capital city!
More importantly, I want them to remember this day as a day of honor and remembrance of how selfishly and bravely MLK served his country, and his people, and that it’s important, no matter how small or grand that we all serve!
So I’m hitting you with this Pecan Pie Recipe, because Pecan Pie was MLK favorite dessert and yes baby, it is celebration worthy!
I have been making this for years,
I remember thinking and guessing what could go into a pecan pie???!!!!
Coupled with the remnants that were my pantry and refrigerator at the time, I just put everything together and it turned out good, so I’ve been making it like this ever since.
It boasts a sweet and gooey inside and my favorite, a crunchy pecan top that takes the dang cake, or in this case the PIE!
This pie is so simple, I just mix everything up, pour it into my prepared pie shell, pop it in the oven and go on about my business!
What you’ll need……
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 cup light corn syrup
4 1/2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 Tablespoons of pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups pecans (I used half in the picture but prefer chopped)
Mix the brown sugar, flour, and granulated sugar together.
Add all the other ingredients and mix well.
Pour in prepared pie shell and bake at 35o° for 50 minutes or until center reaches 200°.
Let pie sit for at least one hour…and that’s pushing it, just be patient it’ll be worth the wait!
