This easy southern pecan pie recipe wonderful for special occasions or holidays. It's very easy to make but is sure to impress your guests. It has a sweet filling with pecans throughout and a hint of cinnamon to top it off. I toast the pecans to really bring out that pecan flavor we all love. If you don't toast the pecans you dont get any where near the amount of flavor you would get from toasting them. This Pecan pie recipe is one of my favorite pies to make, and I hope you love it as much as I do.
