“This is our family's original southern pecan pie recipe. I have gotten may requests for this recipe, almost every time I make it someones asks me for the recipe! I am posting it here because I really appreciate all the great recipes I have found here and wanted to share something I think is really easy to make but comes out like a real gourmet treat.( I have found that a deep pie pan does not work as well as a shallow one in this recipe and you really should use a 9 or even a 10 inch pan if you have one.)”
