HBO’s True Blood Season 7 Finale – Gran’s Pecan Pie Recipe

August 20, 2014

A Recipe to Get You in the Mood for the True Blood Finale:

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) cries into Grans pie in HBO's True BloodSo here we are, at the very end of HBO’s True Blood and we are crying like Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) did after her Gran died all the way back in Season 1. In tribute of this sad event, I am reposting my recipe for Gran’s Pecan Pie, so all you truebies can cry into their pie while watching the True Blood Season 7 finale!

Gran’s Cryin’ Pecan Pie

 

Ingredients

Pie Crust

1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup confectioner’s sugar
113grams cold, unsalted butter, chopped
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Pie Filling

395gram tin sweetened condensed milk
60grams brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsps Bailey’s Irish Cream liqueur (or 1 tsp of vanilla extract)
1/4 cup maple syrup
Pecan halves, to decorate

Gran's Cryin' Pecan PieMethod

  • Add all the pastry ingredients to a food processor and whiz until totally combined.
  • Grease a pie dish and, using your fingers, press out the pastry dough until smooth.
  • Bake in the over at 340 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Add all the pie filling ingredients (except the eggs) to a pan and heat on a medium temperature until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Turn off the heat and allow to cool for five minutes.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking quickly to prevent them cooking unevenly.
  • Turn the heat back on to low and whisk until the mixture thickens into custard.
  • Pour into the pie crust and decorate with pecan halves
  • Refrigerate until set and serve with either whipped cream or ice cream
  • Enjoy! (But don’t forget to cry while eating it.)

True Blood Season 7: The Finale Table Read Ends With…

June 19, 2014

…Tears for Many of the True Blood Cast:

Goodbyes Suck True Blood Season 7 promo posterIt turns out it’s not just the fans of departing HBO show, True Blood, that are crying up a storm – the cast are now tearing up at the table read of the True Blood Season 7 finale! TV Line had this exclusive to share in regards to True Blood’s very last episode ever:

The table read for the series finale took place earlier this week, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, Stephen Moyer confirms. “People turned up that we hadn’t seen for ages — [series creator] Alan [Ball] was there,” he tells TVLine. “We’re sitting in the same room we’ve been reading in for seven years… that stuff’s really deep.”

So, already, the tears are flowing… from me, and I don’t even know what goes down in the Season 7 finale!

With the loss of a loved character in the very first episode of True Blood already confirmed, will we see even more deaths by the very end of True Blood? Just how many of our faves will die and/or meet the true death before the show is laid to rest?

Although, it’s nice to see that the show creator, Alan Ball, showed up to complete the circle.
