This is probably the best pecan pie I've ever had. It's the old fashioned kind. My friend Nancy's Mother brought this pie to a social one evening. I was following her around like a puppy begging for the recipe. She said there was not one...but she would write down how she makes it. This was years ago and both Nancy and her Mom have passed away, and I still have the piece of paper she wrote it on. You see it here. I treasure this. And I still make this pie.
