My first ever attempt at Pecan Pie, and it turned out beautifully. The crust was firm but flakey, and the filling was sweet, nutty and gooey. I fancied up the crust by cutting out star shapes from the pastry scraps, then cutting them in half, and "glued" them down with a bit of egg white.
My husband has declared it his 'new favourite pie" and my mother-in-law(who is also celiac) could not stop exclaiming how good this was between mouthfuls.
I think this was a success.

I liked how the embellishment on the crust looked like little crowns!
The oh so simple ingredients for the caramel. White sugar, brown sugar, molasses, corn syrup and butter. I think this was one of the simplest pies to make, with the most impressive presentation!
