I have had so many requests for this recipe since I first shared it at Thanksgiving that I am re posting it in time for Christmas. Enjoy!
“I have nibbled at the Utterly Deadly Southern Pecan Pie, and have served it to those in whose welfare I took no interest, but being inclined to plumpness, and having as well a desire to see out my days on earth, I have never eaten a full portion.” Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, “Cross Creek Cookery”
This is a pecan pie for people who don’t really care for pecan pie.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings’ “Utterly Deadly Southern Pecan Pie” is a transformational recipe that lacks the bitter, burnt flavored top crust that other pecan pies seem to have. It is more like praline candy than pie and according to Rawlings “fat men are particularly addicted to it.” So you know it’s good!
For 30 years, I have made this pie for Thanksgiving, sharing it with people I very much care about, not just the “fat men” who clamor for it.
