The Best Southern Pecan Pie Recipe

Today I’m going to share with you the best, the very best Southern Pecan Pie recipe.  However, I have a confession to make– I don’t actually make this pie.  Mellow Man does.  For some reason, I’m not terribly good with baking pies.  They are a bit of a challenge for me.  I do better with a graham cracker crust, and frozen or creamy pies.  I’m not sure why.  Mellow Man makes me at least one pecan pie every year, and we haven’t always stuck with the same recipe.  However, after many taste tests, I know the recipe that I love best, so he sticks with that one.  Now, this recipe turns out to be the perfect Southern pecan pie– the texture and taste are exactly what you are looking for.  It’s ooey, and gooey, and so sweet.  I promise that when you are done making it, you’ll agree that it’s the best Southern Pecan Pie recipe out there.

Do you love pie? Southern Pecan Pie? I do, and this is, hands down, the best Southern pecan pie recipe that I have found, and I've tried many different recipes. None quite match the gooey texture and sweetness of this recipe. Can't wait for another slice!

Pecan Praline Monkey Bread

Georgia is the Pecan capital of the world, did you know that? When we drive down to Florida from Atlanta to visit family, we stop at the Pecan farms to pick up some freshly picked Pecans. I’m not sure of the proper Southern pronunciation of pecan, as I have friends from the South who pronounce the nuts many different ways. (Do you call them Pee-CANs or Pee-CONs?) Regardless, around this time of year, my thoughts turn to pecans (and pumpkin) recipes. My favorite pie is Pecan Pie (yes, I have a recipe that I plan on sharing), and my favorite candy is Pecan Pralines (yes, I have a recipe for pralines as well). Today I want to share with you a quick and easy pecan brunch food that is easy to make with Pillsbury Sweet Rolls— Pecan Praline Monkey Bread. The recipe takes like a doughy, buttery version of praline candy, and it’s the perfect brunch treat this holiday season. Take it to your office party, or church function– it’s extra delicious and so easy to make!
