Pecan Pie_comp  “My memory goes back to the 1950’s when my great-Aunt Concetta (who was my third and fourth grade teacher, by the way!)  used to make this exact pecan pie recipe often.   It was one of her favorites, as is mine.  
It is one of those old-fashioned,  fool-proof recipes that cannot be improved upon. This classic has had many variations through the years, but I really still enjoy this simple one.  It is delicious and comes out perfectly every time.  Enjoy!”
