Remember last month, when my family had our “head” issue? Well, the effects of the issue are still being felt ’round these parts.

I mean, it’s all gone, (knocking LOUDLY on wood) but the psychological trauma is still in residence.

I am convinced I stil have it. Mel has checked me, I have checked me, I’m practically bald from all the checking. I am using peppermint shampoo and conditioner. But every time my head itches I will myself not to scratch it, because if the itch goes away, it wasn’t that bad and that means I’m clean.

I am imagining that things are crawling on my head. My hair hurts thinking about it.

And people. I didn’t even have lice. Just two long-dead nits in my hair (thank you hair coloring, I heart thee.)

Jordan wears her hair up to school every day now. I douse her backpack and sweater with tea tree spray. I douse her head with peppermint spray. She wears tea tree gel. And I wash every sweater after one use.

Every time she scratches her head I stare hard at it. Last week, she got a cold and seriously, I kid you not, the first thought I had was, “the last time she got a cold she had lice three days later” and I panicked for the 30 seconds it took for the rational part of my brain to wrestle control back from the ledge.

On Monday, my anxiety was so bad that Mel made me call the lady who had taken care of the original problem and I paid her to come to my house and do a check on us. I was clean, and felt fine. Until we got to Kohl’s and started trying on clothes that ohmigod may have been tried on by someone with lice!

Some of you probably think I’m embellishing to make a good post.

Sadly, I’m not. I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

Remember the ants? You could say I have a problem with bugs.

I’d honestly rather have ants than lice.

Actually, I’d rather have neither. I’d rather have pie.

And, quite possibly, psychiatric help.

I’ve said before that I’m not a huge fan of Pecan Pie, not because of the flavor, but because of the texture. Well, I think I figured out the cure for that problem: chocolate chips.

This is my mom’s pecan pie recipe, but I changed it up with macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips. The white chocolate chips don’t really dissolve, but they give the center of the pie more body, which I love.

This pie is amazing. It’s sweet, crunchy, soft, and savory all at the same time. I mean, macadamia nuts? Best. Nuts. Evvverrrr.

Seriously. You want this pie in your life. It’s that good.

And it’s waaaaay better than lice or ants. Or bug-related PTSD.

Macadamia Nut White Chocolate Pie

Macadamia Nut White Chocolate Pie

Recipe adapted from my Mom's pecan pie recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts
  • 2/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 pie crust (homemade or refrigerated)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Unroll pie crust and place in your pie plate, crimping the edges as desired. Sprinkle the macadamia nuts and white chips on the bottom of the crust.
  2. Beat eggs by hand in a large bowl. Stir in corn syrup, sugar, salt, and melted butter. Pour over nuts and chips.
  3. Place pie on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes, until the top is browned. The center will still be wiggly, but will set as the pie cools. If the crust becomes too brown during cooking, cover the edges with foil.
  4. Cool completely before cutting.

    I love the swap for macadamia nuts! And am kind of convincing myself I don’t need to scratch my head right now all of a sudden…

    Just so everyone else understands…you get your neurosis from your father! A little Xanax might help take the edge off. lol
    I was thinking about using about 1/2 of the pecan pie filling and maybe brownies in the bottom for the other 1/2. I never thought about chocolate chips…hmmmm
    Love, Mom

    Wow, this pie looks sooo yummy! Can’t wait to make it! And about the bugs…our family had our first ever encounter with lice this school year as well. It was very mild, and we got rid of them quick. But I was so VERY, VERY traumatized!! I totally feel ya on this one.

    dorothy, my dear friend! white chocolate macadamia nut cookies are one of my all time favorites – a classic combination. putting it all into pie form is something unheard of, and quite certainly a must try! :)

    I totally understand your neurosis, since I’d be the exact same way. But I have a feeling this pie would make me feel ALOT better. I actually love pecan pie, but macadamia nut? Ooooh, yes, please!

    I grew up with a mother with an irrational fear of lice. Now I kinda see where she was coming from.
    Hopefully your “PTSD” is over soon!
    This looks delicious…maybe a switch from my normal pecan pie this year…

    I love the twist you put on this pie. I grew up in NC, so saying no to pecan pie is basically a sin. However, I think I might make this pie and show my relatives a fun twist on the traditional pie. I just hope I’m not exiled from the state. :)

    I just started scratching my head. . .! I haven’t ever had it but I can’t even read about it without getting itchy!

    This pie is a good distraction! :) I love that you took a classic cookie combination and turned it into a pie!

    Whoa. I say that a lot over here, don’t I? That looks amazing.
    And btw, now that my oldest is in school, lice is my WORST FEAR. Holy lord, please don’t let it in our house. I will freak the eff out. I swear I’d be scratchin’ my head for months. Crap, I’m itching right now.
    I need this pie to distract myself. :o)

    My daughter had one year ago, Halloween (yes Halloween day, I got the call from school). I am still traumatized. Every time someone scratches their head around here, I’m all over them. And I itch every time I see the word lice, I’m itching now. Long story longer, I don’t think it will ever go away. Do not even let me tell you about last weekend when we went to the mall and she put on a hat! On her head!

    I was very lucky and thankful that my boys never had lice. I am suffering from pie recipe addiction … there is no cure :(

    Oh Dorothy! I know your fear of bugs all too well! I am manically phobic of any gross little crawling flying nasty little so and so! It is so bad that the Orkin man at work knows my name and I get so excited to see him each month! Another thing that makes me excited? This Pie!! good Gracious this looks good! Buffet table of desserts and I am going to eat this whole pie by myself!
