MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2011

I made these to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday after reading that pecan pie was his favorite. I didn't want to make a whole pie just for me and my husband so I made some of these, had a few, and took the rest to work. They were a hit, and I have been asked for the recipe from a co-worker who plans to make them for her daughter's wedding reception. They are SO GOOD!
