When I was a little girl, I would eat just the pecans of the pecan pie that my mother had just baked. She would get the pie out of the oven and leave the kitchen and when she came back, some pecans would be missing from the top of the pie. Needless to say, she was not very happy about this. She never got upset with me, the pie was taken to my grandmother's without a few pecans.

This recipe tastes just like the pecans from the top of my mother's pie. I still do not like the filling of a pecan pie. If I am at a restaurant that has pecan pie, I will get the pie and still just eat the pecans off the top.
