Out-of This-World Pecan Pie

I never used to care that much about pecan pie. I mean, they were pretty good but I never liked them enough to make many….This pie changed my mind! Now I sometimes CRAVE it…it’s JUST THAT GOOD! I hope you like it just as much as my family and I do! (My oldest daughter Jenny always requests this pie!)

I made my own crust, which I hadn’t done in a loooong time (lazy maybe??) so I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Thankfully, it turned out really well and I think that made this pie even better (if that’s possible) than before. I’ll share the pie crust recipe with you soon so be on the look out!

This is all you need...besides the pie crust, that is!
