Pie Recipes

Pecan (my Aunt Myrtle's recipe)

5 eggs - beat until thick
1.5 c sugar - add and stir well
3/4 c white Karo - add
pinch salt - add
1.5 t vanilla - add
5 oz evaporated milk - add
stir all well
Add 1 c pecans (or more. chopped or unchopped. do your thing.)
Pour into two unbaked pie shells
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes

Sweet Potato (my modification on The Stranger's recipe

2 c baked garnet yam
2 c baked sweet potato
(both fresh, not canned)
mashed with 2T butter
add 4 egg yolks, 2 cups evaporated milk, 1 c brown sugar, 1/2 c light Karo, 1/2 c honey, 2t vanilla, 1 t each ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg.
Stir this mixture

Beat the 4 egg whites until soft peaks, fold into rest of mixture gently.

Bake 40-45 min at 375.

In both of these recipes, for crying out loud please use the full fat evaporated milk unless you have a darn good reason not to.
