Personal Notes:
Pecan trees are very common in Texas, so we always had bags of fresh pecans around. We ate them, freshly shelled, and of course there was usually a Pecan Pie for dessert. This was my great Aunt "Cupie's" recipe. It's a standard recipe, with no frills, but it was handed down and ended up in my mother's recipe files, so I dedicate it to her. Fresh pecans off the tree in your own backyard is a real treat, though, if you're up to some hard work!
