Tailgating can happen nearly everywhere. But we want to spotlight a couple of cities with the same name and find a great food recipe that one could use at either city. So how about some love for Wilmington, Delaware and Wilmington, North Carolina.

Pecan Pie Crust:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 stick cold unsalted butter, cubed
- 1/2 cup very cold water
- 1 stick butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup corn syrup (feel free to substitute sorghum, maple syrup, or sugar cane syrup)
- Pinch of salt
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups chopped pecans
- In a food processor combine flour, salt, sugar, and cubed butter.
- Pulse until texture resembles cornmeal.
- Add water, a little at a time, pulsing until a ball of dough forms.
- Place food processor bowl in the fridge for 1 hour.
- Heat oven to 350º.
- Melt butter.
- Add sugar, syrup, and salt and stir.

- Add pecans and mix well.
- On a floured surface, roll out your pie dough and transfer it to your pie dish.
- Push it into your dish and pinch off any extra dough.
- Pour filling into the dish, spreading it out with the back of your spoon to make sure that the pecans are evenly distributed.
- Bake for 35 minutes, or until the center is firm but not necessarily hard. (A little jiggle is good, but it shouldn’t be sloshing around in there.)
- Let cool to room temperature before serving.
