Have you been to Platte County, MO? Try one of their favorites, Platte County Pie.
It is fun to go through my archives of recipe books that I have made by writing recipes out of magazines. I came across the recipe for Platte County Pie. The recipe I use was out of Bon Appetit, 1978, from the Frolics Restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri.
Is it a pie or cookie?
Everyone likes to indulge in chocolate and pecans, this is one soft pie that is like a big cookie, thick and sweet with a flaky pastry dough holding it together. Who can refuse such a pie?
