pecan pie

Pecan Pie is such a great Southern treat that is incredibly easy and delicious with loads of buttery pecans baked up in a soft filling made with eggs, butter and sugar. It has a total of eight easy ingredients and if using a frozen or premade crust you can have it in the oven in less than ten minutes. I love to serve this Pecan Pie during the holidays especially around Thanksgiving. This pie, Apple Galette, Buttermilk Pie and Easy Rum Cake are just a few of our favorites for this time of year.
