New Year's Day we attend two annual parties; one is a "pie party" (bring a pie, eat pie, take home pie). For a variety of reasons, I went "simple" this year -- and punted to what has become a classic variation on pecan pie. This is for folks who like chocolate and who think traditional pecan pies are too sweet; this is not a "sweet" pie. (Note: my pecan pie is not too sweet, either - it's more expensive than your average pecan pie because I use more pecans and less filling.)
PS. I found Georgia pecans this year! (At QFC, of all places.) Paid a lot more than getting them at Costco, but I don't care! I know where they were grown.
