Summer of Lizzie Tour: What’s Cookin’ at Eat it Or Starve

Detective Any true Lizzie fan knows that her favorite place to grab a bite is at the Eat It or Starve Cafe.  Lizzie secretly loves Maddie’s no nonsense attitude and trusts that Maddie knows exactly what dish Lizzie needs that day.

So, let’s check in with Brookdale’s resident chef to find out what she is cooking up today….

Well, it looks like we just got in a whole mess of pecans. That means it’s time to whip up some fresh pecan pie. Don’t like it? Well too bad…

I always make my pies using my mother’s time-tested recipe. It surely is the best around. I must be feeling extra generous today because I am going to share the recipes for both our 8-inch and 9-inch pie.

Pecan Pie from Eat it or Starve: 

8 inch version:

3 eggs

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup Karo syrup

1/3 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup melted butter

1 cup pecans, chopped
Mix together all ingredients and bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes. To test doneness, best to cook about 50 to 55 minutes
9 inch version:
The 9 inch version is nearly the same, just a little bit bigger.
4 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 cup Karo syrup

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Mix together all ingredients and bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes. To test doneness, best to cook about 50 to 55 minutes
