This is my favorite pecan pie recipe. Everyone raves and raves when I serve it at Thanksgiving each year. While I absolutely love the taste of this pie, I love the person that created it even more. My mimi passed away a couple of years ago and this pie recipe is one of the things that keeps her memory living on.
It was so amazing being one of Mimi’s granddaughters because she truly saw “her girls” as her pride and joy – and everyone knew it! She passed on her love for shopping and definitely helped teach me “my craft!” Mimi was also a bit of a fire-cracker and told things like exactly how she saw it. She held nothing back!
My hope is that my family will remember this yummy pie and that it will remind them of home the same way it reminds me of growing up with Mimi’s desserts. I can’t wait to make my favorite pecan pie this Thanksgiving and think of the wonderful memories with my mimi.
