Oh I envy you, Maggie - and those pecans fresh off the tree- they are so much better than the store bought.

My grand-mother-in-law gave me about a metric ton of pecans after the harvest. They are all frozen up in my freezer waiting for me to experiment. I hate wasting the yummy little things. this recipe is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.
