Pecan Pie

Keeping with my new infatuation with pecans, I had a random craving for Pecan Pie last week. I've never actually had pecan pie before, so I had no clue what I was getting into. I just new that I needed one in my life asap.

I searched around for a bit and most recipes had a very common review: delicious but very sweet!

While I do like my sweets, I wanted a recipe that let the buttery goodness of pecans shine through.  This recipe that I found on seemed to fit the bill! Still a sweet and delicious pecan pie, but not so sweet that it felt like you were eating a massive piece of candy.  

I will admit that I used a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust (so handy!) because I had one on hand, but I know this would be even better with a flaky homemade pie crust.  I will get over my fear of pie crust soon, I will!
