Finally…the pecan pie

I love to bake, and I’m not half bad at it either. Cookies, cakes, brownies…no problem. I can dish ’em out. But the one dessert that has escaped me is the delicious pecan pie…oh, and popcorn balls but nobody cares about popcorn balls except at Halloween. I have attempted to make pecan pies and inevitably something always goes wrong. I have actually had the crust melt off the pan before. How does that even happen?? I don’t know either. The first one I tried to make cooked for hours without ever “setting up”, which means it was really runny. I felt really bad for everyone who had to eat it.
However, against all odds, I tried again. And the pie came out pretty dog gone good. A tad bit burned but not so much that you couldn’t eat it or anything. I even made the crust from scratch and it was good. So I am patting myself on the back every time I eat a slice. Below is a picture of this delicious pie I finally made (it only took about five years to accomplish). Please ignore the pieces missing.
