This week in our study of Southeastern states is Alabama. The capital of Alabama is Montgomery. Did you know that the Pecan is the official Alabama state nut, and that "fried pies are said to have originated from Alabama"? Speaking of pies how about a pie recipe to try...
Southern Pecan Pie
- 9” unbaked deep dish pie crust
- 3 eggs
- 1/8 tsp Salt
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 cup clear or white Karo Syrup
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 cup chopped pecans or pecan halves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs and salt together. Mix in flour and sugar. Gradually add Karo syrup, beat well. Add melted butter and pecans. Pour into pie crust.
Bake 45 minutes to an hour. Pie is done when the top cracks.
If you are from Alabama feel free to share a recipe with us to try. I'll be back next week to share what's next in our study of the Southeastern states. Thank you for stopping by to learn along with us.
