I almost forgot---August is also the time for a lot of country County Fairs, including right here in the Shenandoah Valley. Here's a fair winner from Judy Acuff of Lathrop, Missouri that she submitted to Country Magazine. Of course you can still take it to your picnic. It's really worth heating up your kitchen for!
Serves: 6
Prep.Time: 20 minutes + 1 hour baking
1/2 cup Butter -- melted
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup All-purpose flour
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 cup chopped Walnuts
1 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips (6-oz.)
1/2 cup Butterscoth Chips
1 Unbaked Pastry Shell (9 inches)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, flour, eggs and vanilla until well-blended. Stir in nuts and chips; pour into pie shell. Bake 1 hour or until golden brown; cool on a wire rack.
