Personal Notes:
I am pretty well known in Jefferson for my pecan pie, and this is the dessert I am asked to bring to different gatherings. I love baking this for friends' birthdays and Christmas presents. My fondest memory comes from when I lived in Longview, and the grandchildren of my dear friend, Joan Anderson, would pass my house and say, "That is where the pecan pie lady lives!"
