pecan_pieIt’s cold and rainy today in Jacksonville. I’m sitting at the computer, have a warm fire in the fireplace and just finished making a pecan pie. The delicious smell of the pie has begun to waft through the house — what a great way to spend the day!

So what’s a pecan pie recipe got to do with a real estate blog? Sometimes we get so focused on the VALUE of our real estate that we forget to simply ENJOY our homes. 

The Pecan Pie recipe is EASY and Delicious so I hope some of you will try it — perfect for the upcoming holidays. Enjoy one for yourself or make a few extra to take to friends. Let me know how yours turns out.

1 C Sugar
3/4 C White Karo Syrup 
1/2 C butter (1 stick)
3 Eggs
1 C Pecan Halves
1/4 t Salt
1 t Vanilla

Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the sugar and Karo Syrup. Bring to a boil while stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool for about 15 minutes.

 Beat the eggs and gradually add to the cooled butter/sugar mixture. Add the Pecans, Salt and Vanilla. Pour into a deep dish pie shell and bake for 40 – 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
