Set the hook in the most fearless fisherman by serving a slice of wonderful pecan pie. This recipe is guaranteed to promote the most humble galley-slave to Master and Commander. And it’s so easy; any galley with a microwave and an oven can do this miracle in just over an hour. Besides pecans, the key ingredient is Wax Orchards Fruit Sweet. Don’t leave the dock without it. Gram for gram is has fewer calories than sugar and it substitutes at about a 3/4 to 1 ratio. Double win. Baked goods stay fresh longer and they have a marvelous gentle sweetness very unlike the sharp glucose spike from refined sugar.
1 cup Wax Orchards Fruit Sweet
1/4 cup melted butter
2 cups roasted and lightly chopped pecans
1 tsp molasses
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
9″ pie crust.
First, roast the pecans…..
1.) Toss 2 generous cups of pecans on a plate and microwave for 1 minute.
2.) Mix them all up and microwave for 1 more minute.
3.) Cut the pecans in half. OK, you can leave a few of them whole.
4.) Blend the melted butter and Wax Orchards Fruit Sweet.
5.) Whisk the eggs, molasses, vanilla and salt together and add it to the Fruit Sweet/butter mixture.
6.) Stir in the pecans.
7.) Pour the whole works into a 9″ pie shell and bake at 350° for 65 minutes.
Mmmmm, what a treat. Bet you didn’t know how nutritious pecans are, or that April is National Pecan Month. When was the last time you baked a fresh pecan pie in your galley stove? This recipe is way too easy for the HUGE bonus points that come with it.
