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.
A slice of Platte County Pie
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?

Fall is in the air and the coloring of the leaves is happening… The beauty of the fall season is something to behold when the sun is shining. I have been given a couple of butternut squash to enjoy in older recipes and create a couple of new ones. This is back to a recipe I put up in October 2014. Still good!
At A Local Farm Market
Acorn and Butternut Squash
The butternut squash beauty on the right was selected for the autumn tart. The wonderful thing about this entree tart it is as tasty as eating dessert. In this particular tart I used shredded chicken from chicken drumsticks previously cooked in the slow cooker. Drumsticks were tried as a means of trying to be economical. Chicken breasts are also very nice to use with this tart. Chicken was used this time as ham is not a part of this household’s diet anymore due to the high sodium and alas….extra fat.
Butternut Squash, Chicken & Pecan Tart baked in a 12-inch tart pan.
Butternut Squash, Chicken & Pecan Tart
This make a wonderful tart with the ginger pastry. It will fill a 11-12 inch tart pan giving it a thick filling. This was a perfect tart, it did not crumble when the tart pan rim was removed or crumble when it was cut. Just add a green salad or vegetable with fruit for dessert and lunch is served.
Butternut Squash, Chicken & Pecan Tart with steamed broccoli
2018 Version of the Tart: I turned it into a 9-inch pie. I cheated and bought a frozen pie crust. I omitted the chicken, added just a little more squash, reduced the sugar some and proceeded as instructed. Really had more filling than needed. Baked the remainder in a small dish.
