Mom’s Pecan Pie
The BEST Pecan Pie recipe. Period.
Every year on my Dad's birthday (which happens to also be Christmas Eve), my Mom makes her Pecan Pie. It's been a tradition since before I was born, and I can't imagine a year without it. It has a perfectly crisp outer shell and a deliciously soft middle full of pecans with a flakey crust. I'd love to try it as mini hand pies so I can have them all year round!
The heavenly smell of toasted pecans wafting from the oven is more than I can handle, and most years I try really hard to pick off a piece when it's done, but my Mom always catches me.
It's a simple recipe with lots and lots of sugar, but really who cares - Isn't that the point of pecan pie?! If you're looking to impress your mother-in-law or get some guy to fall in love with you, this would be the pie to make...trust me 😉
