Welcome to Foodie Friday! Food is, without a doubt, one of my top 3 favorite things. And since this blog is in the spirit of sharing, I figured why not share some great food while I’m at it?
I’ll be honest- that post title is more than a little deceptive. This isn’t a post about your normal, everyday pecan pie. No, it’s about more than that. Much more. It’s about a pecan pie so delicious, so insanely perfect that it converted me from a Pecan Pie Hater to it’s #1 fan. I give you: Mini Chocolate Spice Pecan Pies (without corn syrup!).
As if that wasn’t enough, these little babies are made from pecans from my very own front yard; I’m not exaggerating when I say these pies can’t be beat.
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 cup butter*
• 1 cup light brown sugar
• 1/4 cup white sugar
• 1 pinch nutmeg
• 1 pinch cinnamon
• 1 tbsp all purpose flour
•1 tbsp milk*
•1 1/2 tsp vanilla
•1 1/4 cup chopped pecans
•1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Martha Stewart can do no wrong in my eyes, so I referred to her Easy Pie Crust for this recipe.
*Milk and butter aren’t things I really love consuming, so I substituted an equal amount of almond milk and Earth Balance.
Let’s Do This:
•Preheat oven to 350
•Beat eggs until foam forms
•Stir in melted butter
•Stir in dry ingredients(brown + white sugar + nutmeg + cinnamon + flour + pecans + chocolate chips)
•Stir in remaining wet ingredients(milk + vanilla)
•Pour into unbaked mini pie shells
•Bake for 25-30 minutes
•Eat them all
