A Traditional Southern United States Pie
Pecan Pie is the pie of Southern hospitality. Having spent several years in the South, I grew to love the culture and the cuisine.
This pie takes me back to that Southern charm.
Occassionally, some Southern folks serve pecan pie with chocolate. You can try squirting some chocolate sauce on to your pie for garnish.
One thing that I do not miss about the South, however, is the heat. Boy, does it get hot down there.
…maybe that’s where I developed by passion for ice cream…hmmm…
Whether you make your ice cream pie with store-bought or homemade ice cream, it will be delicious.
