My post today comes from the inspiration of great desserts. This week I had a slice of mouthwatering pecan pie, which is one of my favorite desserts. I absolutely love this pie. I haven’t had it in awhile, so I was very happy when I found out what we had for dessert at work. This made me happy 🙂 Well since this is such a great dessert that you can have as part of any holiday feast, I thought I’d share a great recipe for you.
I’ve often thought about at times of becoming a professional baker, and after having a slice of pecan pie – reminds me of why I would love my new career. <LOL> I’ve always liked baking more than cooking. In my opinion I’m a better baker than cook.
Remember you can have pecan pie for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and your family reunion! If you have a pecan pie recipe you would like to share, please let me know. I would be happy to post it. Stop by and tell us how your recipe turned out. So here it is:
