Pecan Pie is one of those recipes that, through the years, has been altered in many ways. It has now spawned such tempting recipes as Chocolate Pecan Pie with Kahlua, Choco-Honey Crunch Pecan Pie, Caramel Pecan Pumpkin Pie, and Bourbon-Raisin Pecan Pie.
A Southern dessert classic, this chess pie is loaded with pecans. Serve it with Texas-size dollops of whipped cream.
Pecan pie is beloved nationwide, but it's especially revered in the South, where it seems that pecans fall from the trees like little gifts from the heavens. Native Americans had long known the pleasures of the nut they named "pacane" (translation: "nut to be cracked with a rock"), but it was French immigrants who turned the nuts into one of America's most loved pies after they settled in New Orleans and discovered the joys of having so many pecan trees in their yard. We say, merci beaucoup!
