Serve Up a Slice of Southern Hospitality

Serve Up a Slice of Southern Hospitality

Nothing says Southern hospitality like a delicious homemade pecan pie.  Whether you like yours made with a splash of Southern bourbon or topped with sweet whipped cream, a slice of crunchy and gooey pecan pie is a Southern favorite any time of the year, but especially around the holidays.
 
A staple of Southern kitchens, this nut packed dessert may look and  taste like someone spent all day in the kitchen  baking, but this super yummy and  easy to make dessert takes only one mixing bowl and seven ingredients! Finish your Holiday dinner on a sweet note with this Southern favorite!
 
The Perfect Southern Pecan Pie  
Ingredients  
•    1 9-inch deep-dish pie shell, unbaked
•    1 3/4 cups pecan halves
•    3/4 cup dark corn syrup
•    1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
•    4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
•    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•    3 large eggs
*Optional - 2 tablespoons good quality Southern bourbon (Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, etc.)
 
Directions
•    Preheat oven to 425ºF.
•    In a large bowl mix corn syrup, brown sugar, melted butter, vanilla and eggs with a wire whisk until blended.
•    Coarsely chop 1 cup pecans; reserving remaining pecan halves. Combine chopped nuts into mixture.
•    Pour filling into pie crust. Bake for 10 minutes at 425ºF.
•    Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF and continue to bake pie for an additional 40 minutes or until edges of filling are set. The center will still jiggle slightly and will firm up during cooling.

•    Cool completely on wire rack. Top with whipped cream before serving.

LOVE this place!! Highly recommend! My husband & I have spent the last four nights at this property.... we'll be leaving tomorrow and have already started planning our return trip! I can't say enough good things about this place... LOVED IT. For those who haven't been to Hilton Head before - it's absolutely amazing. This was our second trip - HH will be our only "beach vacation" destination from here on out! The beaches are beautiful (beach near Night Heron is very quiet!), the island has a great natural /outdoorsy feel, and there are amazing restaurants all over the island. (Highly recommend Truffles!!) Savannah is nearby for a daytrip on a cloudy/rainy day, and today we went kayaking on Broad Creek and had several dolphins come right up to our kayaks! The Night Heron community is great. I love the quaint feeling - reminds me of Girl Scout camp as a kid! The villas are tucked into the woods and feel isolated, even though there's plenty to do nearby. It's a shady 5 min walk to the beach, and an easy bike ride to Harbour Town shops/restaurants (sorry - didn't time it). Noise from traffic or other residents was never an issue -we fell asleep to the sound of frogs and awoke to the sound of birds singing. This villa backs up to a wooded area of trees, palmetto, and Spanish moss - fabulous view! The property itself is great - nicely renovated with fresh paint colors, great kitchen & bathroom, nice furniture throughout, etc. Big flat screen TV's in living room and bedroom are a perk. WiFi was reliable, which was good because we're computer junkies! The living room has lots of space - we brought our dog, so it was nice to have a large space to set up his XL dog crate in the living room. Washer & dryer in the bathroom were convenient - they're small, but wash/dry quickly. The bathroom cabinet has a shelf labelled "dog drying towels," which was a nice touch! (There is also a dog bed & several dog toys included.) Two boogie boards & a skim board on the screened porch - we didn't use them, but would be great for a family with kids. Cleaning supplies are included for any quick cleanups (we love the Shark sweeper - need one for our own house!). Honestly, I can't think of anything that this house was lacking or any drawbacks that I noted. Booking was easy through BeachBum property management, and Margot & Jim (property managers) stopped by today while they were in the neighborhood. Overall, we had a great trip and wish we didn't have to leave tomorrow!! We'll be back!
