THIS IS a recipe my mother-in-law shared with me several years ago.
It's easy to make, and most of the ingredients are in everybody's cupboard. And it does really taste like pecan pie.
We have it quite often, but it's tradition to have this pie on the menu during the holidays.

Here’s a dessert any busy hostess could love! Shared by Carolyn Ruch of New London, Wisconsin, it goes together in minutes, looks and tastes like you really fussed, and is easily doubled to feed any size gathering.
This is the treasured "Golden Oldie" that my grandmother made so often whenever we'd come to visit. Grandma grew her own pecans, and we never tried of cracking them and picking out the meat when we knew we'd be treated to her special pie!
In charge of dessert for a fund-raising dinner at our church, I experimented and came up with this scrumptious pie made in a jelly roll pan. It fed a group and got rave reviews. With flavorful apples and maple syrup, it gives a true taste of the Northeast.

This pie won Grand Champion in the Apple Pie category at the 1992 Okanogan County Fair. The pie looks traditional, but making your own filling gives it a different flair and great taste. —Dolores Scholz, Tonasket, Washington
