..Pecan Pie

This pecan pie might not look as pretty as one you would buy, but I would bet all my monies that it damn well tastes more delicious! I honestly don't even LIKE pecan pie and had no idea how to go about making it, but my Dad's 50th birthday fell on Thanksgiving Day this year and it is his absolute favorite.  It usually is my aunts duty but the dinner was held on the other side of the family this year and what kind of daughter would I be if  I let him miss out on his favorite treat he only gets to eat once a year on his birthday? What's a girl to do? MAKE THE PIE, DUH. I know. Whilst perusing the internet for recipes they all called for some mystery ingredient I assumed was gross called "Karo syrup" (which turned out isn't weird or gross at all but scared me anyway) so I was determined to find a recipe that didn't have it and that also seemed easy enough to bang out before the "night-before-thanksgiving-drinkfest" that we all know and love commenced. Enter this recipe. I made one for the dinner and one for him to take on his annual hunting trip that follows every year. No joke, my dad, the non-texter, sent me this text the next day "Your pecan pie is the best me and my friends have ever had!" Mission accomplished. It was super easy and very tasty! 

Ingredients
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
