Wonderful creamy pecan flavored bisque that is especially good for winter holidays. This recipe comes from Jambalaya, the Jr. League of New Orleans cookbook.I make this every Christmas for gatherings and am always asked how to make it. Pecans are a Southern delicacy and I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

The creator shared this with us last Christmas, and it was divine indeed! Very unusual and rich. I will substitute a vegetable broth when I make it, amd maybe toss in a bit of sherry or brandy?
