Pecan Pie

My first pecan pie of the season has just gone into the oven.  Had to buy the pecans at the store… my tree just isn’t ready to give them up yet.  That’s my “new” rolling pin.  If you haven’t read about my old one, I hope you’ll scroll on down a couple of articles, or just click over to “I have this rolling pin”.

We have out of town friends coming over tonight for pie and coffee, here in Portales to celebrate Thanksgiving with family.  The perfect opportunity to get out Nana’s delicious recipe!  That’s it in the photo, in her handwriting, on one of her Stanley note cards.

I share her recipe with you.  There’s no recipe for the crust.  You just have to learn that on your own.  Some flour, some shortening, some salt and some water.  (And yes, Kim… the extra is in the oven with the pie, and will be the perfect little snack with cinnamon and sugar!)

Pecan Pie

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 stick butter

3/4 cup Karo

1 cup pecans

Bake one hour at 350.  1 pie.  Nana

I wish you all a most blessed Thanksgiving!

    Sandie, the Stanley note card reminds me of when I was a little girl (and that was long ago) your Nana,(we knew her as Mrs. Borden) would come to Arch and my Mom would have a Stanley Party for her. All the neighbors would come and order Stanley products.
    That was back in the 50’s, but doesn’t seem that long ago. Thought I would share that with you.

    Marcea, I love hearing stories about the Stanley parties. I’m going to share about one I attended. Be on the lookout… coming soon. =)

    Light karo or dark? I need to compare this to the one my mom always made. I’m the only one in the family who LOVES pecan pie. I’ve never made one but want to try.
