Holiday Pecan Pie Recipe

This easy holiday recipe for pecan pie uses dark corn syrup, which you may make yourself.  Just click on the link below.

PECAN PIE RECIPE FROM SCRATCH

1-3/4 cups white sugar
1/4 cup homemade dark corn syrup
1/4 cup homemade unsalted butter
1 TBS cold water
2 tsp cornstarch
3 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups pecans
9 inch homemade pie crust

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, butter, water, and cornstarch bring to a full boil, and remove from heat.

In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Gradually beat in cooked syrup mixture. Stir in salt, vanilla, and pecans. Pour into pie shell.

Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until filling is set.





I know you can find cranberry sauce recipes that have a lot of sugar in them.  That's why I searched the internet and found this beauty.  The sweetness comes from the juice, fruit and honey.

Best Cranberry Sauce (without the sugar)

2 bags of fresh cranberries
3/4 cup pineapple juice (or orange juice)
1/2 cup applesauce (without sugar if you wish)
1/2 cup water
zest and juice of 1 orange
3 to 4 TBS honey (or to taste)

Put cranberries, pineapple juice, applesauce and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. 

Keep on medium heat, stirring constantly until the cranberries burst; approximately 10 to 15 minutes. 

Reduce heat and simmer.  Add the juice and zest of the orange and stir well.  Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes and remove from the heat.

Cool completely and store in refrigerator at least 4 hours but preferably overnight before serving.  Make sure you taste this, because it is not as sweet as the jellied store version.  If you want it sweeter, just add more honey.  Recipe adapted from WellnessMama.com




This recipe was on a Sam's Club flyer.

DIY Cinnamon Bourbon (Whiskey or Brandy)

1.75L of your favorite (Makers Mark) alcohol
8 cinnamon sticks
3 oz simple syrup**

Add the cinnamon sticks and simple syrup to the liquor bottle and put the cap back on.  Shake the bottle daily for five days and then it is ready to serve.



**Simple Syrup Recipe

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water

Simply combine equal parts (1:1) in a bottle and shake it until the sugar is completely dissolved. This makes 4 ounces of simple syrup and for this recipe you only need 3 ounces - so use 3/4 of this and discard the rest, or make a drink.
