Briana's Favorite Pecan Pie

Rose Mary Mogan


I have quite a few recipes for Pecan pie, but of all the ones I make this one is my daughters favorite, so I named it in her honor to distinguish one recipe from the others. I hope you like it too. The recipe for this one is in my cookbook. It is great with freshly whipped topping, cool whip or as pecan Pie A La Mode. I think it gets it's distinct flavor from the added Rum or Bourbon.
