Pecan Pie

This is my grandmother’s recipe.  Honestly, it is one of the best pecan pies that I have ever tasted. I have enjoyed this recipe for pecan pie all of my life. I believe this may have been the original pecan pie recipe on the back of a Karo bottle, this is no longer the current recipe for pecan pie on the bottle.

    I’m a diabetic but really love pecans, i thought maybe to make them into tarts, that way i can enjoy them but not over due, since it is now just myself and my husband. The children live so far away since they grew up.
