British Pie Week Day 4 – An American option? Pecan Pie

I know it’s British Pie Week but the odd American import must surely spice things up. So against the grain here is a lovely Mimi’s Pecan Pie Recipe from Cordon Blue Grass – Blue Ribbon recipes from Kentucky. 

 

 

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups dark corn syrup (or maple syrup)

1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla

1 teaspoon lemon jiuce

5 eggs

1 tablespoon plain flour

1 1/2 cups pecan nuts

1 prepared flan case uncooked

Method

In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add all other ingredients except the pecans. Mix well.

Fold in the pecans.

Bake the pastry case for 2 – 3 minutes at 450 degrees f/230 degrees C/Gas mark 8

Pour in the filling and return the pie to the oven and reduce the heat to 350 degrees f/ 180 degrees C/Gas mark 3 and bake for 40 minutes.

This is scrummy!
