I looked all over the internet for a copy of this pecan pie to make for Thanksgiving, but Google failed me.
A bit of a story first: about 30 years ago my mother was a patient of Winter Park Hospital for a lengthy stay in ICU and CCU. During that time they served a pecan pie for dessert that was simply the best she had ever eaten – it had even beat Ann Lander’s version!
Later she found and clipped the recipe out of the Orlando Sentinel newspaper and I came across that recipe only a few years ago. I have retyped it and sent it to various family members. Of course I didn’t have it when I was making desserts for Thanksgiving, so decided to put it in a blog entry so I could actually find it in the future!
As mentioned above, this was copied from the Orlando Sentinel newspaper and other than that I don’t have a publication date or any other specific information. I do know it is about the best pecan pie EVER. Enjoy!
