Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Recipe of the Week

Maple Pecan Pie

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Mapple Pecan Pie


2 C all purpose flour
½ C canola oil
¼ C milk
1 T lemon juice

3 eggs
½ C sugar
1 C maple syrup
3 T melted butter
½ t vanilla
¼ t salt
2 C pecan pieces

To prepare the crust, mix all four ingredients together until well incorporated.  Divide into two balls.  Roll out each ball between sheets of parchment or waxed paper. Transfer to pie shell, trim and pinch edge.  

Whisk eggs and sugar until smooth.  Add everything but pecans and mix well.  Spread pecans evenly between two pie shells and pour the liquid evenly in each pie. If you measure from a two cup bowl, each pie will take 1 cup of filling to be even.  Bake for 45 minutes at 375.  Should pass a clean knife test.  Let cool before cutting to serve.
