Pecan Pie for Two
PECAN PIE was always requested by the family for special occasions. When we became empty nesters, it was hard to give up some of our family favorites when we found that leftovers were too much for the two of us.
Smaller recipes were hard to come by, so I was delightful to find this one. Now we can have pecan pie - fresh - just for the two of us.
