My Christmas Card to You: Pecan Pie Recipe from Colonial Williamsburg

I've spent many Christmases working at Colonial Williamsburg and loved every minute of it. . . .Getting caught up in the festivities, it made Christmas away from home more like a labor of Love.

And the food! Oh My! . . .It's an experience in itself. . . .One of the reasons I didn't mind working Christmas Day was the food. . . .Christmas Dinner was banquet tables--yes, tables--of culinary favorites from the Colonial Williamsburg chefs. . . .Recipes from the taverns, Colonial Williamsburg Inn and Lodge, and the bakery. . . .Makes my mouth water to think about it. . . .

Every Christmas I send my friends Christmas Card Recipes. . . .A small token I share for them to enjoy at Christmas or to tuck away until later. . . .
This year I chose the King's Arms Tavern Pecan Pie. . . .It's very easy. . . .and always delicious. . . .It includes a pastry crust recipe that is wonderful also. . . .although I admit that I often use the frozen pastry when in a hurry. . . .

Since you, my blogging friends, are so special to me, I thought I'd share a Card and Recipe with you!

 
A Southern Classic. . . .Hope you enjoy it. . . .
Oh! and Feel free to print out the recipe to share with your friends. . . .
 
 . . . from my farmhouse to yours. . .

Oh we love Pecan Pie! Though we don't always have it for the holiday especially with the price of pecans so outrageous! Have you ever tried it will honey? I think it helps keep the sugary taste down.

Going to visit Williamsburg is one of my dreams! I would also love to work there.

One of my two favorite pies Dru. I use my mom's recipe which I love. It calls for dark karo. I think I need to try this one sometime too. Sure hope Mom don't frown down on me from heaven. lol! I know she loved trying new things too. Have a very Merry Christmas!

We love pecan pie! We lived in Williamsburg for 5 years, only a few miles from downtown. We enjoyed it so much! Thank you for sharing this, I shared on Joyous Notions also!

Thank you Dru! What a nice gift. I will share this recipe with my friends, I love that idea. We have been to Williamsburg, and live not too far from Plymouth Plantation. I live in a reproduction of a house from Lakeville, MA and just love your blog!
