Pecan Praline Pie

I have been trying to not eat as much sugar this year. It had been going pretty well until last night. I blew it in a major way and it was DELICIOUS!

My sweet grandparents sent us a cookbook (my favorite kind of gift) for Christmas  "Let's Get Cooking". It features recipes from various restaurants in their hometown of Macon.

Last night Mom and I made the Pecan Praline Pie from Twila Faye's Tea Room & Soda Fountain. OH MY! 9 inches of ooey-gooey goodness!

Pecan Praline Pie
1 9" Pie shell
1/2 cup Pecan halves
1/2 cup Rolled Oats
2 teaspoons Whole Wheat Flour
1 stick of Butter, melted
1/2 cup  Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
1/8 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Dash of Salt

In a baking dish, bake oats, pecans and flour until toasted (10-15 minutes) at 350, set aside and prepare filling. In a medium bowl combine melted butter and sugars. Add eggs, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Pour oat mixture into pie shell, cover with filling and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until barely set.
