A few quick words on pecans. Pecans are delicious. I adore them.
Most pies are yummy. (Maybe not minced meat or even pumpkin for me, actually.) Sweet and savory pies. I still have a memory on my tongue of a spaghetti pie my mom used to make when I was a kid. Yum.
Pecan pie is one of my favorites. (Right behind coconut cream pie!) Usually I only eat pecan pie once or twice a year, though. It’s a holiday pie for me. And for years I have made it the same way.
I modified my regular recipe a little this time around with mixed results. As much as I love pecans I think this pie had a few too many of them. I enjoy the glop as much as the nuts in this pie and with this many nuts there wasn’t enough glop. But that’s an easy fix. . just back off on the pecans a bit.
