This recipe was my mother in law's recipe. It is not your typical pecan pie in that you do not use syrup in it. It is so good though! She passed away suddenly in 2006 and I have been asked, by my husband & his siblings, to bake this pie every Thanksgiving & Christmas. It is an honor to do so. I think about my sweet mother in law each time! Enjoy!
