O.K. this is a very creepy Retro 1940s Karo Syrup Advertisement, but since it features the Karo Kid as a New Year's baby, I thought I'd post it. I love Peanut Pies. Add a Chocolate Cookie Crust, and I'm in heaven. Peanuts and Chocolate -- great way to start the New Year.
DEEP SOUTH PEANUT PIE
2 eggs beaten
1 cup Karo Syrup, Blue Label (dark syrup)
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp melted butter
1 cup shelled, roasted peanuts
Roll pastry 1/8-inch thick. Line 9-inch pie pan. Mix remaining ingredients together, adding peanuts last. Pour into pastry shell. Bake in hot oven (400˚F) 40 minutes or until a silver knife inserted in center of filling comes out clean.
To make Peanut Tarts:
Follow above recipe for De Luxe Peanut Pie using 1 recipe pastry. Line 6 to 8 individual tart shells. Pour in filling. Bake in hot oven (400˚F) 20 to 25 minutes.
