Tar Heel Pie

I’m a little slow getting around to posting this. In April we went to North Carolina and as a pie lover this postcard jumped off the rack and into my hands. This is the ‘state pie’ of North Carolina. Pecans and chocolate!

Tar Heel Pie

1 cup chocolate chips
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten

Pour warm butter over chocolate chips and stir. Blend all remaining ingredients and stir into chocolate chip mixture. Pour into an unbaked pie shell. Bake in 350* oven for 30-40 minutes.

Here’s a couple pics from North Carolina. We went off season so its really bare.

Chimney Rock near Lake Lure

This is a burl from a Black Birch. I was amazed at the size. Its quite lovely wood. Click on the images to enlarge.

Lake Lure is where Dirty Dancing was filmed. Its a lovely area. You can go to the top of Chimney Rock if you look closely you’ll see a fence around the edges. Spectacular view from up there, but we didn’t get to see it. It wasn’t open 😦  There was a nice little town to roam around and shop though.

Make a great day and eat a piece of pie for me!
