at my son’s house with the pie my nerves grew, I thought to myself maybe after all these years I didn’t remember the recipe or got the ingredients wrong. I was making such a big deal about it and I wanted to duplicate the delicious taste & memories of my childhood for my family to enjoy. They were all a little reluctant to try it at first, but one by one, they each tasted it. As each person tried a slice, they couldn’t help but make that “mmmm!” sound and push for the next person to try it. They kept thinking that everyone was exaggerating on how delicious it was, until… they tried it for themselves. My son could not believe how good it was, and I sweltered with pride. He just kept saying, “ this is the best pecan pie ive ever had” and everyone agreed. For years it became a demand from the family at every holiday and birthday celebration that I had to bake multiple Pecan Pies. My son, who owns a restaurant put it on the menu and has become one of the reasons people came to the restaurant. One of the best sellers and most requested items on the menu. We decided to make an everlasting tribute to Mama Hazel and allow the world to experience the joy and happiness with every bite.
