I'm attempting a pumpkin molasses spice cake for after the Mel Brown concert tonight.
Anyone making anything special for New Year's?
On the pecans, it's 1&1/4 cups. I omitted the word "cups".
My pecan pie recipe comes from an old Better Homes and Garden cookbook (I think--the cover is long gone!). I tinker with the additives.
3 eggs (2 large will work): beat Then add and mix 1 cup light corn syrup (or maple flavored syrup) 2/3 cup sugar (maybe half of it brown) 1/3 cup melted butter or marg. 1 tsp vanilla
Then add and stir in 1 and 1/4 pecans--pieces and wholes wholes are tough to cut when pie is done)..
Here's where I'll add persimmon pulp or apple sauce to give it a little zing--about 1/4 cup stirred in. Bake in pie shell 50' @ 350 degrees (check with knife or toothpick)
My pie crust uses the same ingrediants as Patricia's, but cut by about a third for one single crust pie.
Good addition Patricia. I didn't catch that from your original post.
Thanks Patricia. I'm saving that recipe and will try it.
Pecans & Persimmons....sounds die-VOON! Can it be served in a crumb crust, or as a pudding? I gave up trying to make decent pie crust 40+ years ago, and the frozen crusts are icky.
Recipe, please? Oh, please????
Christmas day. Nothing special to eat--leftover cabbage and bean soup. I did make a pecan/persimmon pie the other day.
Merry Newtonmas (Dec. 25), and health and happiness to you all!
In honor of Sir Isaac, we could feast on Fig Newtons and apple pie.
Pat, the so-called Prince of Peace told his followers to sell everything and use the money to buy swords. He didn't give Jack Schidt for the poor. More like the Prince of Chop-'em-Into-Pieces....
Patricia, one Halloween we ran out of candy before 8PM, and we did turn the porch light off, but a late-arriving bunch yelled "Trick 'R Treat!" anyway....I yelled back, "All we have left are Brussels sprouts." You should have heard them screaming "EEWWW!!!!" as they ran down the front walk.
And you should have seen me ROTFLMAO.
(I love sprouts...if they aren't overcooked. I learned the right way to do it from Julia Child....my poor Mom always turned them to mush.)
