My Mother-in-law Wathon Woodham, is a lovely person. I am fortunate to have her in my life. I am most grateful for the way she raised her son, my husband. He is the best gift that she has given me.
In addition, she is a great cook. I have learned many things from her about cooking and health . Several of her recipes are my favorites. I hope to pass that knowledge down to my daughter. Ashley is a fan of Wathon’s Pecan Pie.
Wathon’s Pecan Pie is special. Every important event and celebration requires more than one of her delicious Pecan Pies. It is always the first thing that I ask for her to bring to any dining event. It is always the first dessert to disappear on the dessert table. Wathon’s pecan pie has become famous at our home among family and friends.
Wathon’s pie recipe originated from the company where she worked for many years. Funsten Nut Company created a great pecan pie. I tried to find details on the internet about the original recipe, but I was not successful. My recipe was inspired by Wathon’s version.
In cooking the pie, I knew that it was going to be a challenge to improve. I decided to focus on removing the corn syrup. I believe that removing this from our diet is healthy. I made a couple of other changes to put my spin on the recipe. I hope that you will enjoy my attempt on updating an already delicious, and in our circle, “famous” pecan pie.
