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.




Pastry

½ cup sugar

125g margarine

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Cream above ingredients and then add :

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

Salt


Put pastry into your chosen pie plates.




Filling

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.
