Happy National Pecan Day! Celebrate this fabulous nut by whipping up pecan pies and pecan sandies a whole slew of other fantastic pecan infused desserts! The nut may seem a humble addition to a dessert - even sometimes considered an "extra," not necessary to the overall deliciousness of a dish - but in these desserts, pecans take center stage and own it to the fullest. Enjoy the crunchy, subtle flavor of these nutty baked goods this weekend!
