Brownie Pie With Walnut Crust

I have been meaning to add this recipe for two weeks now. It’s what I made husband for his b’day treat and it was so, so good! This recipe was in the 2015 Farmer’s Almanac and I believe it comes from a Comfort Food recipe book as it shows a picture of it. Of course we had it with some of our homemade vanilla ice cream and everyone enjoyed it to no end. One word of advice though, it is very, very rich so make sure your sweet tooth is ready, willing and able! I used a walnut pie crust made from scratch but you can use any crust you deem fit for this sweet and savory treat during the holidays, I think I’ll make little individual pies so I can give them away with some homemade cookies. I also want to try this recipe with pecans and butterscotch chips at that time and maybe a cream cheese pie crust, oh wow! I’ll give you an update at that time…………

Gimme a spoon!

Speedy Apple Pie

What a nice weekend I had to start off the holiday week! Husband took me to a Civil War Reenactment here at the Suwannee Music Park and out to dinner. We walked down to the river and around on some of the trails where I found some Indian Pipe mushrooms which I haven’t seen in years. After hitting over the sixty mark, I really don’t care to celebrate b’days like I used to but it was fun to see the park and and be outdoors on a beautiful day with my favorite man!

Also got a late b’day call from granddaughter yesterday and found out that she and her husband had no plans for Thanksgiving but they do now! For the first time in many moons, we will have both granddaughters here with their significant others and boy do I have a big to-do list during the next couple of days for husband, ha ha! Both girls will be here early to help in the kitchen, something I’m not used to, except for Kenny getting in my way of course! I’m not sure how much I’ll get done here this week on our site, so today being Monday, I thought I’d at least get something quick and easy in for you. This pie can be made in just minutes but of course, I have to make a real apple pie or face criminal neglect charges from husband!
