Easter Treats

Happy Easter everyone!

There's never a shortage of chocolate in our house at Easter but I still felt the need to bake.

We celebrated our family dinner last night so I made a few pies for dessert. Butterscotch is always a favourite, so I made two of them.

And, I added a new one to my repertoire - pecan. I learned about a week ago that it's the favourite of the Official Cookie Tester. Who knew??? I always thought his favourite was pumpkin! You're married to a guy for 20 years but do you really know him? :).

If I've made a pecan pie before I have no memory of it, but I'll definitely bake one again 'cause it's dead easy. The recipe that I used also has a pinch of cinnamon in it, which was a nice touch. Not being able to choose, many of us opted for a little slice of both. With 11 of us around the table there wasn't a whole lot of pie left - just enough for a slice or two to be enjoyed today. Hope you all have a lovely Easter filled with some of your favourite treats....M

Happy Easter, to you, too, Marie. I love pecan pie but don't bake it often -- my husband is diabetic (and he loves it, too).

Poor cookie tester spoilt for choice!

As one who sampled BOTH after dinner, they were delicious -- and slimming, too!
