Cigar Man loves pecan pie so I made one for his birthday. He's an old fashioned kind of guy. He likes the old tried and true recipes. For example, he prefers roast beef and potatoes over a quiche or any kind of casserole on any day of the week.
I, on the other hand, LOVE to try casseroles and the more you throw in the mix, the better. I guess it's true. Opposites do attract.
Thirty-seven years ago when I was a young bride, pecan pie was the first dessert I tried to bake. To say it didn't turn out like I'd expected was an understatement. It was hard as a brick. We laughed and slammed it on the counter top to see if it would break. It didn't!
It was then that I decided to join a cookbook club. I received dozens of cookbooks in the mail and I would actually study them at night. That's how I learned to cook. I'm not a great cook by any means, but you can eat my pecan pie now without breaking a tooth!
This pie recipe came from an old church cookbook. You know, where the ladies of the church contribute their recipes and compile them in a book. Do you have a few of those? As you can see, I have used it often. LOL! I don't know Mrs. Hazel Springer, the contributor of this recipe, but I sure do appreciate her!
