Southern Mini Pecan Pies Recipe

The more recipes that I put up here, the more you're going to see pecan recipes. The tastes of pecans is reason enough. Pecans are so tasty in fact, that two Apollo moon missions had them on board. But I have a different reason. In my front yard is a pecan tree that produced 95 pounds of pecans this year. It produces pecans every year. Not only do I send them out as Christmas gifts, but I make a lot of stuff from them.  This recipe is another Pecan Pie recipe.  The difference between that and the Yum Yum Pecan pie is mainly the brown sugar. It may not sound like much, but to a Pecan Pie aficionado, it's enough.  But there is something else about this cooking of this recipe you might like.

Brown Sugar Black Peppered Candy Pecans Recipe

My wife loves pecans.  Lucky for me, we have a pecan tree in the front yard that produces a log of pecans. This year was 97 pounds of pecans.
So, I was sitting around watching football, playing with my new grandbaby, and looking at this years Christmas gifts. I started thinking about how the simple gifts really are the best. Especially those that are homemade and come from the heart. So I decided to make something with pecans for her. I looked a a few recipes and didn't see anything that I really liked so decided I would make one up myself using stuff we both like. So that's how I wound up with Brown Sugar Black Pepper Candied Pecans this Christmas Day.

Yum Yum Pecan Pie Recipe

I've always liked pecans.  I've always like sugar.  I've always liked bread and butter.  Truth is like most guys born in the 50's, I like anything that packs a lot of sweetness, fat, and requires expertise in the dosage and preparation of nuts.  It's probably one of the reasons Mama Cass was so popular. (Just in case you missed it... that's what we call an innuendo (in-you-win-doe).  Read up on the big Mama if you missed it.  Since I have a Pecan Tree in the front yard, I get to practice this recipe fairly regularly. Try it. You'll like it.  If you don't, then try the other Pecan Pie Recipe I'll be putting here in the next week or so.
