I love pecan pie.
Buuuttt I always pick off the pecans... what's the point, right? The ooey, gooey, caramel-y filling is the point.
Now that I've gotten older, I really kind of like the pecans, but the habit of picking them off when I was little is just ingrained in me now.
Since I didn't want to waste any expensive pecans, I figured I'd just sub them for apples.
I'll admit that it was kind of a long shot, but oh so worth it. It didn't turn out like I thought it would, but it was pretty amazing. *I was expecting the filling to be gooey like it is in pecan pie, but I made a mistake and I mixed the apples in instead of layering the filling and then the apples, so learn from me and don't do that if you want the gooeyness. If you just want a sweet and sticky overflowing apple pie, then mix it.
Sorry for all the pictures... I kind of went a little crazy, but the pie was just so gorgeous, I couldn't resist.
What's your opinion on pecan pie?
Do you have any eating habits that are ingrained in you from childhood?
