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.
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
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 1/2 cups pecan nuts
1 prepared flan case uncooked
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!
