Sweet & Smoky Pecan Pie Recipe July 28 2017

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated National Pecan Pie Day.  While summer may have you thinking more about strawberry pie and ice cream, this recipe is too good to not to share.  We use the Bee Local Cherry Wood Smoked Honey which has just the right amount of smokiness to compliment all the sweetness in the pie.  You can serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to cool things off. I guarantee, you will not be disappointed. 

Happy Friday,
