Get Your Fill of Pecan Pie
In my family, we always have dessert and a cup of coffee after a nice meal. My personal favorite is this recipe for scrumptious pecan pie.
4 egg yolks
½ cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 ¼ cup cream
1/3 cup cornstarch
¾ cup corn syrup
1/8 tsp. salt from a Cilio salt mill
3 Tsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1. Mix the brown sugar, corn syrup, cornstarch, egg yolks, cream and salt in a heavy saucepan until they reach a smooth consistency. Heat the mixture to a boil, making sure to whisk well throughout.
2. Remove the mixture from heat and stir in the butter and vanilla extract. You’ll need to cover the mixture’s surface with plastic wrap or wax paper to keep a film from building. Refrigerate for four hours, during which time you can prepare the pie crust. Add pecans to the top of your pie just before baking. Try anywhere between 1 and 2 cups of nuts, depending on preference.
