Pecan Pie

I created this recipe back in July because I was so excited for fall 😂

Fall is my favorite season for a number of reasons (ha that ryhmes)

1. My birthday is in November

2. Thanksgiving (my obsession with pumpkin pie is getting problematic)

3. The trees are absolutely gorgeous!


(FYI, I was not driving when I took this picture)

This pecan pie is really easy to make & there is no processed ingredients in it! If you give this a try, make sure you tag #medhacooks on Instagram!
