This is my first attempt in making and eating a pecan desert.. it is too good to resist. I am sure everyone who eats this will love it for sure.
I am in a whole thanskgiving mood and cooking up a storm for this thanksgiving. I am trying to cover as much recipe as i can and this was my first recipe on the list. I ordered pecans from amazon and made this as well a pecan pie too. Both were irresistable.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
