This is another version of Great Great Grandma Andrew's Carrot Pie

My Great Grandma Charlotte Andrews Kennedy just jazzed it up a bit with the pecan topping and sweetened condensed milk... it is good either way.

*** You can substitute: Sweet potatoes, pumpkin, or squash in place of the carrots... they all taste good!

Yum! This is not your average pecan pie. It's a cross between a carrot cake and a pecan pie. It's a match made in pie heaven! The crunchy brown sugar and not topping is the perfect touch. It tastes like fall with every bite. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
