Happy Thanksgiving!!!

November 27th, 2008

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a wonderful turkey-filled Thanksgiving with your friends and family!

So, Thanksgiving, as you would probably agree, is not complete without a good slice of pie. In my family, we always have pumpkin, pecan, chocolate chess and pine nut. This is the first year that I am unable to go home for Thanksgiving. Even though I miss my family, I refuse to miss out on the Pine Nut Pie. This pie is just amazing…buttery brown sugar with pine nuts! How can you go wrong? After making this myself, I think I would add a pinch of salt.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Pine Nut Pie
(from Weaver Street found here)

1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon heavy cream
8 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup pine nuts
1 9in pie crust

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine all ingredients except the pine nuts and whisk until blended. Do not over beat.
3. Fold in the pine nuts and pour into the pie crust.
4. Bake for 45-50 minutes.

    Ah, you’re right– it is missing salt! Looks great, though :) Happy Thanksgiving!

    That pie is perfection!

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I’m sorry you didn’t get to see you family. You’re always welcome here. Haha. It’s only a 6 hour? drive. Probably more than that.
