You guys! No joke- I have such an awesome recipe to share with you today!

When I came across the idea of taking a pie and making it into a creation of my own, I was thinking about the holidays, and the food I love. I knew immediately what I wanted to make.

When I think of the Fall and Thanksgiving I think of falling leaves, cooler weather and family of course. But then I think of food! And pecan pie. Typically people are all about the turkey buuuut….. I’m all about the pecan pie!

I was telling my dad, also a pecan pie lover, about my little project and he asked how anyone could wreck a perfectly good pecan pie, but then when he heard I was making a Pecan Pie Milkshake he suddenly became a little more interested!

So I headed to Walmart to grab my ingredients. Starting with a Marie Calender’s® Dessert Pie and a can of Reddi-Wip®

I started with baking my pie. I found this cover on Amazon a year or so ago after I baked a pie and my foil fell off the edges and ruined my crust! So I don’t take those kind of chances anymore!

Perfect crust every time!

Next, I put my milk, ice cream and slice of pecan pie into the blender and blended until it wasn’t chunky anymore.

Poured it into a glass and topped with Reddi-Wip and a few chopped pecans and it was ready to drink!

    Oh my, I think I need this pecan pie milkshake in my life. It sounds delicious! Your art print is so much fun. I’ve tried making a few of those, but they are never as fun as the ones I find online. [client]
