Delicious LOCAL Pecans plus a recipe!

If you haven't tried the wonderful Whispering Hills Pecans available in the bulk department now is the time!  These quality pecans are locally grown and hand-picked in nearby Hunt, TX.  These are a limited availability so be sure to give them a try while you can.  I've included a really great pecan pie recipe here that adds medjool dates into the mix, perfect for any barbequing you have planned for the near future!


Medjool Date Pecan Pie

4 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of salt
1 pie crust
1 1/2 cups soft Medjool dates (pitted and coarsely chopped)
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans

1. Mix the eggs, sugar, butter, corn syrup, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl.
2. Place the pie crust into the pie plate and form the edge.
3. Place the dates and nuts into the pie and pour the mixture from step one into the pie plate.
4. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until set, about 40-50 minutes.
