Abraham Lincoln


Abraham Lincoln


A celebrity? Perhaps, but it’s President’s Day and who better than everyone’s favorite, Honest Abe himself. Mrs. Lincoln told intimates that although the President never really thought about food, and his eating habits were spartan, he did have a sweet tooth.




Abraham Lincoln’s




1 9-inch unbaked pie shell

1 ½ cups broken pecan meats

1 cup dark corn syrup

¾ cup sugar

½ cup butter, softened

3 large eggs, stirred

1 tsp. vanilla


Cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the dark corn syrup and the lightly beaten eggs. Add the pecans and the vanilla. Blend together well and pour into pie shell. (May put foil in shell and fill with dried beans, baking 5 to 7 minutes at 400 degrees if desired, before adding filling) Bake at 400 degrees 45-50 minutes or until knife inserted in filling comes out clean.
