Best Wishes and A Recipe ..... For You !

Happy President's Day !

Although Harry Truman is not one of the presidents honored on this late February holiday I offer this fun recipe for a coffee cake like pie, Bess Truman's Ozark Pie !  Not caring much for many of our presidents I have always been enamoured with their wives, many of whome were the true ruler of our nation ! Bess Truman was one of my favorites as she was a pie lover ! Here is one of her favorites !

Ozark Pie

1          lg      egg

1          lg      egg yolk

1/2      cup   sugar

1/4      cup   firmly packed light brown sugar

1/2      tsp   vanilla extract

1/2      cup   all-purpose flour plus

1          Tbl   all-purpose flour

1 1/2   Tbl   baking powder

1/2      tsp   ground cinnamon

1/4      tsp   ground nutmeg

1          lg    apple peeled, cored, and cut into chunks

1/2      cup chopped pecans 

            fresh whipped cream or applesauce for garnish
 Butter a 9 1/2 inch deep dish pie pan; set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine egg, egg yolk, sugar, and brown sugar; beat, using an electric mixer, for 2 minutes or until light and airy; blend in vanilla. In another bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir into the batter along with the apple and nuts. Transfer mixture into prepared pie pan; smoothing the top to even out. Place pie on the center rack of a 350 oven; bake about 30 minutes or until the top is a dark golden brown and crusted over; the apples will most likely be visible through the crust. Place pie on a wire rack and let cool. Serve barely warm or at room temperature, garnished with whipped cream or applesauce. Yum !
