Tasty Pi(e)

So the other day, one my friends took me to this great pie place about two blocks away from DeWolfe Street. The place is called Petsi Pies and it is awesome. The pie is great especially on a cold day. They have sweet pie, savory pies, and tons of other bakery treats. Here is the link to the google maps: Petsi Pies-Google Maps

The only drawback is that it can be pretty expensive about $4 a slice but it is well worth the money. I personally recommend the Chocolate Pecan pie. 

If you don’t want to buy pie or if you live in Quad, here is a recipe to make Pecan pie:

1 Cup White Corn Syrup
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Melted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3 Eggs
2 Cups Roasted Pecans
Refrigerated pre-made pie dough

Preheat oven to 350. Put the butter in the microwave until it is completely melted. In a mixing bowl combine corn syrup, brown sugar, salt, butter and vanilla. In another bowl, slightly beat eggs and then add to pecan mixture. Roll out refrigerated pie dough to 1/8th thickness and approximately an inch in diameter larger than the pie tin. Pinch the pie edge to make a “wave” shape cutting off excess as you go. Put filling into unbaked pie shell and top with pecans. Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes. At this point, take the pie out and add strips of tin foil to the pie edge to keep it from burning. Place pie back in over for another 30-40 minutes. Test if pie is done by inserting a knife in the center of the pie. If it comes out clean, you are ready to remove the pie, otherwise give it an additional 10 minutes.

For those of you who don’t like to read, I found a YouTube video as well (Note: the video has a strange old lady and a weird sound track, but it seems like a legitimate recipe):

Enjoy the holidays!
