I have a few more dessert recipes for you today, tomorrow will be our Feature Friday, then next week some posts about the best hostess gifts ( of course some are handmade ) and more! If you haven’t linked up there is still time to add your creative posts, recipes… on our weekly link up each Friday of the week! Today I wanted to share with you a few more pecan desserts and baking recipes I found. I am also sharing a Pecan Praline Family Recipe!
Now pecan was one of my grandma and mom’s favorites for the holidays. Although they are no longer with us, in the spirit of their memory I love adding dishes that remind me of them during the holidays! I think these recipes would make them smile!
- A family Pecan Praline recipe is at end of post, it is printable / save format from me to you!
Now when we think of traditions, memories and Thanksgiving a Pecan Pie would be the dessert front center! Doesn’t it just look yummy?
- Recipe from Joy of Cooking for a Chocolate Pecan Pie

My grandma’s favorites for holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas were Pecan Tassies! Little bite sized cups of heaven! As kids we never counted, we just ate them until the tray was empty! So much for being healthy! Such treats were often a free for all until we could eat no more. I must say I have a bit more restraint now. My favorite Pecan Tassie Recipe is from the Joy of Cooking
As I mentioned yesterday we will be traveling to have our Thanksgiving. So this might be the perfect dessert to fare a ride in the car as still look pretty. Today I am also sharing one of my mom’s recipes.
