that looks really good and VERY easy. last year was the first time that i've ever had pecan pie and i didn't want to try making it on my own since i thought that it would be more complicated but honestly, the way that you break out the steps here, it's not too hard right? i'm going to have to use these images so i know how to layout the pecans on the top to make it look pretty.
