Yum! This is a delicious pecan pie.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Pecan pie is a holiday staple and this pie is super yummy. The flavor is sweet with a hint of tang from the cream cheese. The filling oozes with delicious goodness. It's almost custard-like. This does not set up like a traditional pecan pie, so it's a little hard to slice. But, the taste is fantastic.
