This pie day you get a review, something I haven’t ever done for Pie Day!

Ever since the Williams-Sonoma sneak peek tour that I went on, I have been jonesing to try one of their pie fillings. Alas, at a price point of $29, my inner cheap skate always goes home and bakes her own pie.

Until this past week, when I found their Thanksgiving items on massive clearance. I picked up a jar of their Pecan Pie mix for $7.99. I can deal with eight dollars to give it a whirl.

The filling only needs eggs and butter once you get it home and your choice of pie crust. You mix in the eggs and butter, pour into the pie crust and bake for 60 minutes in a 300 degree oven.

Cheater pecan pie.

Easy? Absolutely. Beautiful? Oh my yes, look at how it baked up! Impressive for guests, truly.

As for taste, I must admit that it’s a little too corn syrupy for me however I truly see how this can appeal to die-hard pecan pie lovers. Pecan pie is meant to be corn syrupy, it’s only in the past few years people have been fooling around with it.

So for the eight dollars I spent, I give it a thumbs up. I would never, ever see myself paying $29 for a jar and that has nothing to do with the quality, because the quality is apparent. I just am too darn cheap.

Tonight we find ourselves off to Mike’s Christmas party, held at the Mayfield dinner theater and seeing the Buddy Holly Story. I’m thrilled to be going to a fun musical! The rest of the weekend is just as busy, the kids Christmas party is on Sunday at West Edmonton Mall and they are so excited to see Santa and get their swag from the company. Such spoiled kids!

Can you believe that tomorrow is December! That I only have 4 more pies!?? Four!!!

Now’s the time to let me know if you have a recipe you would like to share and be a guest poster here on TKM for one of my last Pie Days!
