Pie of the Week #15

A while back, I mentioned that my mom didn't like making pie crust, so she loved any pie recipe that got around that problem. Here's another one of her favorites that I remember her making when I was a kid. I think she got this recipe from her good friend (and great cook) Doris Dishinger -- lovely lady. Anyway, here's the recipe (look how neatly I used to write - wonder what happened?):

Although the recipe says use a heaping 1/2 cup of flour, don't. It will make it too cakey. Oh, and oleo? Guess that shows just how old this recipe is, doesn't it? I use butter these days.

And of course, you don't have to use pecans halves. I just happened to have some I got at First Monday the other day.

And, as always, we put whipped cream on top, but ice cream would be really good too.

Three of my favorite things -- pie, tea, & knitting (Monkey Socks).

Your sock knitting is wonderful! Yum yum to the pie!
If you decide to interview for the eighth grade job, you'll get it and then you can tell me about YOUR good students. Would that be full time? How are you feeling about the life style shift?

Thank you for sharing your Mother's recipe. I love chocolate and think I will whip up this yummy pie this week-end.

I really do like your monkey sock knitted in the solid white shade..really seems to bring out the unique pattern. My Monkey sock is in bright shades of yellow and orange, now you have me thinking about one in a solid light tone!

I love your blog! Cheers!
