I have not fixed

I have not fixed it yet but my doctor told me at the office today I looked like Paula Deen and people have been telling me that for years, so he says then you can bring us a Paula Deen pecan pie to thank us if you want to so bad. So I am going to bake this pie and take it to them. Unless you want to make it for me. Haha. Let you know how it goes!!! Had to rate to send but I am sure it will be right.

Ridiculously eas

Ridiculously easy recipe. The pie is balanced and not disgustingly gelatinous like many pecan pies. I make this every Thanksgiving now and people never stop asking me for the recipe. It's especially good served a little warm with some vanilla ice cream. I also know some gentlemen who like it with a small glass of bourbon on the side!
