However, this was the easiest recipe I have ever attempted. I haven't tasted the pie just yet, but it smells of maple-y goodness and that to me equals amazing! Here's how easy it is:
Chop up some pecans (please note: yours do not have to be from Texas!)
Then throw the maple syrup, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, flour, butter, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl...and whisk that baby (whisk it good!)!
I wanted to double the recipe since I had an extra pie crust, but I didn't have quite enough maple syrup, so I one and a halfed the recipe to make two 3/4s pies. If that makes sense.
Then, put the chopped pecans in the pie crust, and pour the heavenly maple goodness mixture on top. Toss (gently!) that pan full of delight into the oven on 350F for one hour and that's it! (I did a little under an hour since it wasn't a full pie)
Super easy. It probably took less than 20 minutes to prepare the filling. I can't wait to dig into these babies! If you would like the recipe, I found it here: Maple Pecan Pie
Since I'm having Thanksgiving today, I spent a bit of yesterday making my yearly Christmas bow for my pup. I crocheted it this year instead of sewing, and it is adorable! If you crochet, you can find the pattern here: Bow Pattern
I don't think he likes it too much, and I know he hates having his picture taken. I was lucky this time and he didn't growl at me!
Also, since today is technically the day after Thanksgiving that means that I get to listen to Christmas now, right? Sure! Here is one of my favorite Christmas songs!

Also, I fear that cartoon Sufjan has jaundice!
