Pecan pie is my absolute favorite. I will eat pecans just about any way! We've got some real southern favorites going on today!

When I was a little girl, everyone raved about my grandmother's pecan pie. I was a picky eater and didn't care for nuts. So I didn't eat it. As an adult, I fell in love with it (see? There is a bit of Southern Belle in there) and wish I had eaten some of her pie - I missed out.

The photo is wonderful and that pie is making me hungry!!

Wow, your pictures of pie are lovely. I have never made a pecan pie and didn't realise it was so easy! It's one of those things where I thought since it's so good it must be difficult to make. Where do the pecans come in and how many? Do you mix them in or layer them on top? Thanks for the heads up.
