It’s really difficult to find the time to cook, then to sort the photos of your produce, and then to add the recipe to your website if you have a young child who cries whenever he wakes up. And I don’t mean “cry” in the normal sense. This child of mine shrieks until he sweats profusely. Boy, it’s driving both mom and I insane!
I love him so much, but at the same time, he certainly does test my patience to the utmost. Little devil, so he is!
Today, I decided to cheat with my recipe and cooking. What’s that mean?
Well, I don’t have an oven. All I’ve got is a single burner on a simple gas stove type thing, which is good for making soups and what have you, but when it comes to baking – well, it ain’t happenin!
However, my neighbour very kindly offered to allow me to utilize her cooker, and you can bet your bottom dollar that I took her up on that offer!!
So there was me, walking in and out of her place while her family watched television and politely smiled at me as I busied myself with the task to hand. I don’t know what they were really thinking, but at least they put up with me as I shuffled in and out of the front door with my variety of culinary accoutrements and ingredients.
Nevertheless, all the caffufle was most sincerely worthwhile. The pecan pie turned out to be exactly as I’d hoped – better in fact. So, for the generosity shown, I left most of it (what I never devoured myself, that is…) to the family.
Mind you, oftentimes Filipino people have a very, very different idea of what tasty food is in comparison to westerners. I mean, the general rule here in the Philippines is to sit down to a large bowl of plain boiled rice and have some form of watery soup thing on the side to add on a whim.
Totally unappealing to me, so it is! I do not however mean any disrespect – each to their own.
I mean – get this… My partner prefers a bowl of plain boiled rice to the most delicious pizza. What in the world??! It’s insanity!
If she does not get her fill of boiled rice each and every day, she gets depressed.
Okay, so let’s dive into the recipe, if you will…
- 1 9inch pie crust – Mrs Smith’s deep dish pie crust recommended
- 1 cup chopped pecan nuts
- 2 eggs (room temp)
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- ¼ cup white sugar
- ½ cup butter
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- *If eggs in fridge, take them out and warm to room temp to avoid the butter clumping when combined with the eggs.
- *Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
- *Beat eggs in large bowl until foamy, then add in melted butter. Combine both sugars and flour and mix well. Finally, add vanilla, milk, and nuts.
- *Pour into 9-inch pie shell. Bake in preheated oven (350F) initially for 15 mins, then reduce heat to 300F (150C) for further 50 – 55 mins, or until pie begins to crack on top.
