This recipe is from my mom's Italian friend who takes the art of cooking to another level. She puts extra care into everything she does in the kitchen from using the freshest ingredients to making even the most common meal uncommonly good with the addition of candles & music. Momma Maglione's attention to detail certainly shines through in this delicious pecan pie recipe. It's not too sweet and has a wonderful consistency. I always whip up the amaretto whipped cream (which I got from the Food Network) as a topping which really sets it off. If tempted to read the calories and fat in this recipe...FORGETABOUIT! This is for special occasions. Enjoy!
