This is a re-post of my absolute favorite homemade pie EVER, and I wanted to remind you to try it out this Thanksgiving! While I love Pecan Pie also, this one is just the perfect pie. . . I can’t wait until Thanksgiving!
My brother-in-law makes this Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie every Thanksgiving, and if it were up to me I’d bypass the turkey and dressing completely, and gobble down this fabulous pie first (in fact I often do!) This recipe is from Patti’s Restaurant in Western Kentucky (also home to the famous Boo-Boo Pie, and the largest Pork Chops you’ve ever seen!), so you know it’s gotta be good! Here’s the recipe . . .
