Macadamia Nut Pie
This is a very delicious pie and easy to make. I am not a fan of pecan pie, but I really like this!!
Macadamia Nut Pie
1/2 C. butter, softened
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt
3/4 C. light corn syrup
2/3 C. macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped
Unbaked pie shell
Cream together butter, brown sugar, vanilla & salt. Blend in syrup. Add eggs slowly and stir until well blended. Fold in nuts. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake 45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Between Christmas and New Year's I made a visit to our local Humane Society. I had been thinking of getting another cat and knew that because of an overcrowding that they were offering cats for free for the month of December. I went to do a few errands and my car made its way there!! There I found "Ricky"!!!! (Long story - Ricky is a she -- as our Lucy is a he!!) Mr. Cardigan was a little surprised, but I told him he shouldn't have been as I had been hinting at this!!! Anyway, our Lucy was not too pleased at all!! She had been the Queen/King here and now someone was invading it. I'll post some pics later of how they are tolerating each other right now. But, this is Ricky after about 5 days here -
Ricky isn't into the "posing" like Lucy is. Maybe I'll get some better photos later. Lucy isn't into "posing" right now either - too busy following Ricky around and keeping an eye on her.
I am linking to Foodie Friday at Design by Gollum. You can click here to see great recipes. Keep checking back as many more are added each day!
I have been loving reading other blogs for a while. I thought that maybe if I was accountable by posting on a blog that I might accomplish more. We will see! Here are some of my current "loves" (besides blogs): decorating for all holidays, crafting, cooking and baking, traveling, shopping, some reality shows, Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives, getting together with my "YaYa" girlfriends,and most of all My Family!!
