Pecan Pie

For our first Thanksgiving as a married couple, Matt and I were invited to enjoy the day with a family from our church. For me that meant I didn't have to prepare a Thanksgiving meal all by myself, so we accepted the invitation. I only had to bring a dessert. Usually I would take the opportunity to bake some cupcakes, my speciality, but I just didn't feel like cupcakes captured the spirit of Thanksgiving. So an old stand by it was...pecan pie! I had never made a pie before so I was really excited and nervous. I even had a dream where my pie was terrible! Luckily I had been blessed with a couple of helpful tools and an old family recipe. I must say...not too bad! I made the leaf crust using these. I love Williams Sonoma! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

If this pie tasted as good as it looks, it must have been superb!
