Pecan Nut Pie


This is another recipe from the book my mom-in-law made for Neil. We all know that pecan nuts are not cheap but for 1 ½ cups of pecan nuts you can make 3 pecan nut pies (medium sized foil plates) or 33 small tartlets which is very good.



½ cup sugar
125g margarine
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Cream above ingredients and then add :
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Put pastry into your chosen pie plates.




Boil the following for 3 minutes :
125g margarine
1 cup golden syrup
½ cup sugar
1 ½ cups pecan nuts


Cool slightly and add 2 beaten eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla essence and 10 crushed up (not too finely) cream crackers

Divide up the filling into the uncooked pie shells and bake for 15 – 20 minutes at 180C.


You can eat it plain or with a dollop of cream. Neil likes to also have a piece with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
