Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Recipe for “Real Texas” Pecan Pie

She’s not from Texas and wants to impress her husband’s family.

Hi! I need some advice on what makes a pecan pie a real Texas pie. I’m from Newark and I married a Dallas boy. This is my first Christmas cooking for his family. They are fifth generation Texans. Feeling the pressure. Also do you say pecaaan with a long a or pecown?

Good lord, woman. You sure ask a lot of questions for a gal from New Jersey. Hit her, I mean it, y’all.
