As we planned our first annual Friendsgiving gathering since relocating to Kentucky, my husband and I discussed what our contributions would be with our friends.
Planning is not only an essential part of the process, but also very fun as we gather ideas, expand our culinary creativity, and anticipate the delicious food and warm conversations we will share with friends. My husband and I worked together to create this recipe, as it is a favorite for both of us.
Pecan pie has always been a holiday favorite because, for me, it’s almost synonymous with this time of year. As pecan pie bakes in our home, the scent is warm and inviting, and the first bite of sweetness is equally satisfying.
This pie is sweetness in itself, and sharing it with friends makes it even sweeter. The memories made at our recent gathering are sweet as well, because these are the special moments of sharing food and being together that we are made to be cherished.
*Flax Egg Directions: Flax eggs are simply ground flaxseed mixed with water and soaked for a few minutes. Flax eggs act as a binder and can be used as an egg alternative in any recipe. To make two flax eggs, mix 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed with 5 tablespoons warm water and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
At Friendsgiving, we laughed, we gathered, and we enjoyed this healthier version of a holiday classic. It was energizing, as it has been a long time since we enjoyed such an occasion. It was also a beautiful, warm Autumn day.
As we all shared moments outside, we watched the leaves swirl around, and spoke of our next gathering. I hope you and your family and friends will enjoy this pie as much as we do, and that many warm memories will be made and shared as well.
