Pie Season

It's pie season and for Thanksgiving this year, I've decided to make pecan pie. I did a test bake this evening and I think it turned out pretty alright. I used one of the recipes from the hillbilly country cookbooks I recently purchased at a Civil War store in Tennessee. To fancy things up, I added Jack Daniels for a more grown-up flavor. It's pretty tasty.

Good for a first try though I have to use one of my smaller pie dishes next time as there's too much crust here. More pecans too I think.

These cookbooks are the best! I've been looking for something like this for a while now. They're so precious, eggs is spelled "aigs." Next time I cook, gonna have to make "Squirrel & Sweet Taters" and "Clinch Mountain Vinegar Pie." Yummy.
