Yankee Pine Nut Pie

This recipe came from The New York Times Heritage Cookbook, published in the 70s. It’s pretty much like pecan pie, except for pine nuts instead of pecans. The cookbook says it’s from Massachusetts. I’d like to know if anyone has ever heard of it, and how Yankees came to get pine nuts. I made it for my blog, The Cooking of Lost America, at oldcooking.blogspot.com.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. 2Sift the sugar, salt and flour into a mixing vowl. Stir in the syrup and eggs. Add the vanilla, butter and pine nuts
  3. 3Pour mixture into the pie shell and bake one hour. Let cool.
