I make a killer pecan pie. Got the recipe from an old cookbook called someting like "Cook like a peasant, eat like a king"

I haven't mastered making my own pie crusts yet, but I have a recipe book from my late Grandmother that has a recipe for crusts in it that I'll probably attempt when I return from deployment. (Will have frozen crusts on hand in the freezer just in case it doesn't work out!
Interested in sharing the recipe? I don't like pecan pie myself, but it's always a family request at Thanksgiving!

I usually enjoy cooking, especially for others. It's a great creative outlet.
I totally would, but I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan so I have no way to get to the recipe.

If you can find a good recipe I would recommend trying to get fresh pecans if you can, it makes the pie so much better. I'm fortunate to have 3 large pecan trees in my backyard, so after I fight the squirrels and gather what I can, I use those in the recipe.
