Layered Pecan Pie

old family recipe

Welcome back to my Devos and Dumplings tried and true recipes. After five years of sharing various dishes, desserts, etc. I’ve had to become a bit creative to find new ones. While packing for our recent move, I discovered a stack of old recipes I had gathered over the years but hadn’t organized into a book. I decided it would be fun to share them with you.
