Pecan pies are probably the only "Southern" food I truly like. Surprisingly, it may have originated in Texas (I was betting on Louisiana.) Delish offers up 15 variations of the pecan pie. You know, for when you tire of the original.
With all the sugar that goes into a pecan pie, I didn't think a diabetic-friendly recipe could exist, but it does! You can also make a gluten-free pie.
