I love pecan pie. Maybe because I grew up in the South. The recipe on the back of Caro Syrup is good. Just buy fresh pecans, and use good vanilla. My wife makes her crust with butter flavor crisco. Keep it really cold, and be careful not to mix it completely into the flour. I am getting hungry writing this.
I found another recipe for a great summer dessert that's easy to make. And once again, you don't have to bake or cook anything. I like that because there's no chance of burning the house down. Make a copy of this and fix it on one of these hot summer days that you know we're going to have real soon.
