Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie with a caramel filling is what my family looks forward to after that big turkey dinner. I often make the pastry crust, but the frozen pie crust you buy at the grocery store works just as well. If you are entertaining, make your pie look pretty and professional by arranging the pecans in a concentric pattern. Use the larger pecans for the outer circle and as you work yourself in, use the smaller ones. I like to use the deep 9 inch pie plate because there is plenty of room to hold the caramel filling.
