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.

Wonderful Couples Getaway We had three couples & the house was perfect! Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom, plus the 1/2 bath was conveniently located near the living/dining area. A very short walk to the beach. Beautifully decorated and clean. The kitchen was equipped with about anything you could need. The house was wonderful! Couldn't have asked for better. Quiet street and conveniently located. We would definitely go here again. We enjoyed some out of the way restaurants including The Sea Shack and Patty's Pig and Pit. Both were very good and not too expensive. Try the stuffed tater at Patty's. It was great! Again, it was a wonderful place to stay.
