Pecan-habanero pie

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 Eggs
1 teaspoon Habanero powder
½ cup Honey
⅓ cup Maple syrup (yes, real)
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 pinch Salt
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter, melted
1½ cup Broken pecans (from my yard, if possible, I have zillions)
Any old pie crust (I use the graham ones from the store)

Brought this to the department picnic, one regular, one hab'd. Very good stuff. Adapted from NIkki and David Goldbeck's American Wholefood Cuisine.

In mixing bowl, beat eggs and habanero powder with fork. Add honey, syrup, vanilla, salt, beat some more. Add butter and pecans, beat a little more.

Pour into pie crust, bake at 400 for 10 minutes, then 350 for about 25 minutes until set. Cool.

Good with Cool Whip (I'm a non-dairy person). The heat is slow - one woman tried it and said 'this isn't hot... oooooh.... I think I'll get some more soda!' Just a nice slow burn. Use two tsp habanero for a bigger kick.

Garnish top of pie with fresh habs for nice look and also visual warning.
