Shelley's Story

When Tippins Restaurant went out of business I was so sad at the thought of never having this pie again. It was just the best place to go for a late night coffee and pie "decompress" with a girlfriend. Then Hen House markets secured all of Tippins old pie recipes and started selling them in their stores. It still wasn't the same for me. I want to sit down with warm, fresh made pie and coffee and chat my bestie up for an hour. Now I can. So can you! Enjoy this pie warm with or without vanilla bean ice cream and a steamy cup of great coffee...and a friend.


eggs, beaten
3/4 c
3/4 c
light corn syrup
1/4 c
butter, melted

1 tsp

1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pie pan with crust, piercing the bottom and sides slightly with a fork and crimping the edge. Scatter the pecans and chips evenly over the bottom.
Mix the remaining 5 ingredients together and pour into the pie crust. Bake for 45 minutes.

    This was very easy, turned out beautiful to the eye and absolutely delicious. I love to cook but generally leave the baking to my lovely and talented wife. This looked so good and so do-able that I tackled it this afternoon. Thanks for sharing, Shelley! I wish I had been privileged to enjoy the wares of Tippins if this is representative of the experience.
