Make Holidays Easier

We are just a few days from the U.S.'s Thanksgiving holiday where a big dinner is anticipated, and yes, expected.  Too often the cook(s) spend more of their time preparing the feast rather than enjoying family and friends.  This holiday season, consider preparing as much of your meal ahead of time as possible.  

Here is a handy webpage with many make ahead recipes ranging from appetizers and side dishes to breads and desserts (click here.)

I found this recipe years ago and lost it.  I finally found it again.  This is delicious.

              Pecan Pumpkin Pie Recipe


         Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
        2 eggs
         1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
         1/2 cup maple syrup
         1/4 cup sugar
         1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
         1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
         1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    2 Eggland's Best Eggs, lightly beaten
     1 cup chopped pecans
     1/2 cup sugar
     1/2 cup maple syrup
    Whipped topping, optional


    Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; trim and flute edges. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, pumpkin, syrup, sugar, cream, cinnamon and nutmeg until smooth; pour into pastry.
    For the topping, in a large bowl, combine the eggs, pecans, sugar and syrup; spoon over top.
    Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°. Bake 40-45 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and top of pie is set.
    Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight. Serve with whipped topping if desired.

Enjoy your holidays.
