Did you know pecan pie is the official dessert of Texas? (Or that states had official desserts at all?) Pecan pie was so named in 2013, following a resolution sponsored by then first-year Texas State Representative Marsha Farney. This was her first bill—and apparently she caught some flack—with lawmakers proposing amendments such as requiring that Texas pecans be the only ones used in pecan pies across the state and making it illegal to use chocolate in the recipe. In celebration of the bill’s passing, the Capitol served up pecan pie.
Luckily, San Saba River Pecan Company makes it easy as pie to replicate this Southern favorite loved nationwide with its Pecan Pie in a Jar, which is perfect for gifting or pantry stocking. Just add eggs and butter, and pour the mixture a prepared pie shell, and within minutes the pie is in the oven. Each jar makes one nine-inch deep dish or two nine-inch pies. Feeling saucy? Add a couple of tablespoons of bourbon!
The smell and taste of the 10,000 pecan trees growing in Central Texas’ Hill Country will pour out of every jar. Indigenous to San Saba County, pecans have been a cash crop since as early as 1857. The county’s typical production is two to five million pounds of pecans per year, backing their title as “Pecan Capital of the World.” All of the San Saba River Pecan Company’s award-winning gourmet products are produced and shipped from facilities housed within the orchard. You'll also "go nuts" for San Saba's Preserves, which include Apple Pecan, Raspberry Pecan, Peach Pecan Amaretto, and Blackberry Pecan.
Pecan Pie in a Jar is the perfect gift for friends, neighbors, and colleagues—anyone whose time in the kitchen you want to make more simple and delicious!
