Rio Grande Pecan Pie

Rio Grande Pecan Pie is a combination of Texas flavor, from the pecan orchards of East Texas all the way to the spice of the Rio Grande Valley. This is a pie that is very carefully layered with a creamy base and flavored with the spice of Texas with the crispy fresh pecans of the season. This is a different pecan pie and not for the faint of heart, but if you eat one slice you will be back for more, its just that kind of pie, sure hope you enjoy it!
