Today is none other than National Pecan Pie Day! If you aren’t from the South, you might be unaware. I’m loving all of these “national” food days. Any extra excuse to eat dessert, am I right? Pecan pie is the ultimate Southern dessert that can be eaten all year round, although non-Southerners may associate it with Thanksgiving or Christmas. That’s not so in Kentucky. If you haven’t had pecan pie, are you even living?!? I think not! It’s hard to believe there are people out there who haven’t ever tried the ooey gooey deliciousness that is known as pecan pie.
