Hi ya friends!

As some of you may know, my trusty assistant Cruella and I like to get into trouble on the farm! But when that happens that means no pie! Boo! So we decided to join forces and put our talents together in our Tack Room Kitchen. We love pie and all things like holiday desserts and my Grandma gave me so many wonderful and yummy recipes. So from her kitchen to mine and yours here is a great recipe for Pecan Pie! A tradition in Southern cuisine and a welcome addition to any holiday table! We hope you enjoy it!
