honey pie

This time of year makes me all mushy inside.  The simple thought of sipping hot cocoa by the christmas tree while listening to Pretty Paper by Willie Nelson makes me teary-eyed.  Now, the tree is up and Jeff has declared that this year, we must "maximum Christmas" (this is exactly why I love this man).  We are planning our attack on the holiday fairs, the holiday markets, and more importantly, the holiday goodies...the baked goodies.  Jeff has been meaning to take me to Four & Twenty Blackbirds due to my love of pie and what better time of year to go.  So, this weekend after a trip to the Brooklyn Flea for some new ornaments, we headed in from the freezing cold, warmed ourselves with a cup of hot chocolate, one slice of salty honey pie and one of the salty carmel apple pie.  I took a picture, which I must apologize in advance, is none too appetizing since we just about devoured them.  The honey pie was custard-y goodness and the sea salt on top did me in.  The apple pie was delicious, but I love apple pie with or without salt. 

I found this recipe for honey pie which I plan to try very soon.

PS Jackson picked our Christmas tree this year.  I'll post some pics soon.
