Mike's Famous Pecan Pie

Tiepedia, the TieMart Blog

Happy Pi Day, folks! Here at TieMart we'll take any excuse for a good slice of pie, so we're definitely Pi Day fans. (Yes, we know it's not the same pie.) This year, we're celebrating the day by sharing our favorite pecan pie recipe.

In the mid 1980s, I was a member of a Rotary Club in central Illinois. I was asked to take charge of the annual sale of bagged pecans. Every year, for years, they ordered 25 cases and sold 25 cases. I was young and brash, so I told them I would double that and ordered 50 cases. I grabbed a recipe off a bag of pecans and, along with a couple of volunteers, baked pecan pies and served it for dessert at our weekly member lunch meeting. We sold all 50 cases of pecans that year, and the pie was often mentioned in meetings afterwards. Thirty years later, this recipe is still a favorite at family get-togethers. Enjoy!
