Good 46º clear morning.
Yesterday we started off clear and sunny and topped at 93º.
Picture of the Day.... perfectly timed!
Interesting about buttons....
We got this recipe from a North Carolina native who says that Crunchy Peanut Pie is a great alternative for pecan pie, because it's got that same gooey texture and nutty crunch. Man-oh-man, it doesn't get much better than this!
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups chopped dry roasted peanuts
- 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
***Did you know that this Crunchy Peanut Pie recipe is famous in Virginia?! Yup, peanuts are a staple ingredient in Virginia and they've mastered mixing them with chocolate. If that sounds good to you, then check out this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Fudge.
