I’m a dessert girl. My Pinterest boards all have around the same amount of pins and then there’s my dessert board. At least 4 times the pins of my other boards. What can I say, I have a sweet tooth! So when it comes to Thanksgiving, I’m all over dessert. Truthfully, I always have room for dessert or I at least save room for it. But with Thanksgiving, room or not, I’m going for the pie! Our family always has pumpkin pie and pecan pie. I’ve always been team pumpkin. But after marrying Steven, I’ve had to master pecan pies, too.
I always thought pecan pie would be really hard to make. I mean, you can get too much easier than pumpkin pie, so naturally pecan pie had to be a difficult one to manage. However, I was seriously wrong about that! It’s so easy and Steven (who is the official taste tester for this blog, in case you didn’t know!) said I shouldn’t change a thing about Grandma’s recipe.
The funny part about this being my Grandma’s recipe is that she isn’t southern. Maybe that’s just me, but pecan pie to me screams the south so I feel like her recipe should have been concocted in a southern state. However, it was not but it is still southern taste bud approved.
