Texas Pie Y’all
I came across this recipe in a cookbook called “BEST of the BEST from TEXAS II”. I want to start sharing Texas recipes with the world, and how better than to start with a Texas Pie Y’all. Right?
When I read the ingredients in this pie (sugar, flour, eggs, milk and real butter), I knew it was going to turn out sweet, but wasn’t absolutely sure the texture of it. The texture ended up being like a pecan pie without the pecans. Very firm. And, me being me, I had to throw my twist on it and make it different. This is where the Essential Oils come in.
Lately, I have been getting into using oils and getting away from pharmaceuticals. The essential oil I chose for this pie was the cinnamon bark. Gives it a cinnamon flavor. What goes best with sugar? Cinnamon. You could use any oil you want, for example, how about lemon??
Did you know that cinnamon bark oil is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function, and acts as an antiseptic. I know it’s contradictory to have it with sugar, but hey. I still get something healthy out of my sugar filled pie. And I don’t eat a lot of it when I do eat it.
NOTE: When cooking with essential oils, never use that much. In fact, in some cases, just a toothpick dipped in the oil is enough to flavor foods.
Top this off with some whipped cream and cinnamon/sugar mix.
Have you ever cooked with essential oils? If so, what did you make?
Other recipes using essential oils.
There’s a few more under “Cooking with Essential Oils“. Hope to build on it!
