Best in Show! Best in Class! Big blue rosettes!

Honey Pecan Pie

1 cup honey
3 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon Watkins vanilla-nut extract
1 cup chopped pecans
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie

In a saucepan or the microwave, bring the honey just to a boil. Quickly beat the eggs into the honey. Add butter, vanilla-nut flavoring, nuts, and nutmeg. Pour into the pie shell.
Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 25 minutes or until set.

The rhubarb and cherry pies each got a blue ribbon, the apple pie got a red. The black raspberry pie got nothing. I will have to look for judge's comments later this week to see if the filling was too seedy, or some other reason.

The apple-honey bread got a red ribbon, as did the knitted apron and the purse.

One day of judging down, one to go. The pie auction to raise money for the fairgrounds is on Wednesday.

Congratulation on all the ribbons. I made a black raspberry crisp and I thought it was a little too seedy. I'm going to use the rest for jams.

Thanks! I have the same problem with the wild black raspberries and blackberries I use. Next year I'm going to plant Heritage raspberries in my garden.
