National Pie Day! Enjoy Lovin' Scoopful

Well, today is National Pie Day and I can think of no better reason to enjoy a container of Lovin' Scoopful Oh My Blueberry Pie.  What could be better?  You get to enjoy all the delicious goodness that pie has to offer without all the calories! 

 If you prefer a traditional pie, may I suggest Pecan cheesecake pie?  You'll need:

Frozen deep dish pie crust
8 oz of cream cheese
4 eggs (divided)
3/4 c. sugar (divided)
1/4 t. salt
2 t vanilla extract (divided)
1 c. light Karo syrup
2 cups pecans, coursely chopped
56 ounce container of Lovin' Scoopful Cozy Vanilla

Frozen pie crust (thaw for 20 minutes). Mix 8oz of cream cheese, 1 egg, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until creamy. Pour into the bottom of the unbaked pie crust. Top with 2 cups of coursely chopped pecans. Then mix/whisk together 1 cup light Karo syrup, 3 eggs, 1/4 cup of sugar, and another teaspoon of vanilla. Pour over the pecans. It may not all fit. That's ok. Just pour in until full. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes. After it cools a little, cut a nice big slice and top it with Lovin' Scoopful Cozy Vanilla. Yummmmmmm...........
