Mom's Pecan Pie - Barbara's Version

While looking among the many Pecan Pie recipes trying to choose which one I wanted to make I came across this recipe. It is from Southern Living October 2007 issue. The pecans are toasted and that's why I decided to try it. Made some minor changes for our tastes. This will be my go to Pecan Pie recipe. My husband and I loved it. It's Rich and Delicious! I will post a photo next time I bake this pie.

Note: I had to adjust my cooking time because my oven cooks fast. The time listed here is from the original recipe found on the myrecipes.com website.
