Goode Company's Pecan Pie
Here's the deal. I've never loved pecan pie UNTIL I tried Goode Co’s Pecan Pie in Houston.
It was love at first bite.
Since I live in LA and do not have access to it (nor do I want to pay an arm to have it shipped and would much rather try to recreate in my own kitchen) – does anyone have a recipe that will yield a pecan pie that comes close?
Am I the only one who’s ever wondered this or are there others of you out there? Come out!! :)
Well, I still haven't heard anything from the Chronicle, but I've been looking in a lot of Texas cookbooks, and out of the countless numbers of Pecan Pie recipes this is the only one that has vinegar in it. It was in a fundraiser cookbook featuring celebrity Texans, and the author is Mary Martin. She is the original Peter Pan, and Larry Hagman's mother.
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of White karo
3 tblsp melted butter
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup pecans, chopped
Mix all ingredients, thoroughly, except the pecans. Add the pecans and mix in. Pour mixture into an unbaked pie shell. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake pie for 25 - 30 minutes, testing for doneness with a knife inserted in the center. It's done if the knife comes out clean. (Moderators - I paraphrased the instructions extensively!)
I guess you could use some whole pecans on the top to "pretty" it up. I would try this, but I am terribly intimidated by pies! Let me know what you think.
WOW -- somehow, something told me to come back and find my old pecan pie posting (since I was craving it again) and I couldn't believe my eyes!!!!
danhole: THANK YOU so much, i am going to give this a try and hopefully not butcher it! I will post back when i get around to making it and let you know how it goes!! if you've happened to try this recipe over the last 10 months (since you posted in jan!) do let me know how it came out!
many many thanks again....
Is it like an Osgoode Pie? I think what makes an Osgoode Pie different from a pecan pie, is the vinegar, and that the layers separate, so there's a gooey (set) layer on the crust, and a light, crusty layer on top. It's also not made with any of the syrups. Osgoode Pie has cinnamon, and nutmeg/cloves/allspice. Does this sound familiar?
