Pecan pie. It has to be the all time easiest pie to make. Every year, I make this Simple Pecan Pie for Grant, because it’s one of his favorites. He loves pecan pie so much he’ll even eat those icky little pies…what are they called… ( sold only in gas stations, or Walmart). You know what I’m talking about?
If you, or someone you love is a pecan pie fan, you’ll love this recipe.
