Pecan Pie DayPecan Pie Day, Pecan pie. Pecan pie is one of my favorite desserts around the world. That s “why I am so excited that Tuesday is the National Pecan Pie Day. There are other days throughout the year nut. April is National Pecan Month, with April 14 National Pecan Day. June 23 is National Pecan Sandies Day. August 20 is National Pecan Chocolate Pie Day, and August 22 is National Day of pecan pie. September 21 is National Day of Pecan cookies.

But nothing is as important, or tasty as the National Pecan Day. I do not know when I started to love pecan pie, but has been a favorite of mine for a long time.

Every time I went to visit my grandmother, she had a pecan pie in the oven for me when I got there. Sometimes I wonder who comes up with the holidays of particular day. As more food festivals, there is much to be at the origin of the feast. Pecans, however, can be dated to the 16th century. That were previously consumed and marketed by Native Americans. Nuts first Europeans found in Mexico, Louisiana and, of course, Texas.

In honor of pecan pie and my grandmother, I would like to share a recipe for pecan pie. I would like to share the recipe, but she knew all of her recipes by heart. So instead here is a recipe from A whip up this week and enjoy!


1 (9 inch) pie shell

3 / 4 cup white sugar

3 / 4 cup corn syrup

3 eggs, beaten

1-teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pinch salt
