Pecan Pie Recipe

Pecan Pie Recipe

Pecan pie is a new holiday staple in my house! Up until the middle of November, I had lived under the assumption that I was still allergic to pecans. However, having outgrown a number of my food allergies during my pregnancy with my daughter, I decided to find out if I had outgrown any more allergies after the birth of my son. To my delight, I am no longer allergic to pecans. For Thanksgiving this year, I made my very first pecan pie. I will also be making another pecan pie for the big Christmas meal.
