Butter Pecan Angel Pie

Posted by on February 16, 2015 in Pies, Recipes | 10 comments

You may notice that when I post a recipe, it has to be easy and fairly quick! With today’s busy life-style, I like to entertain, but making it difficult means I do it less often. Having people over for cards or an easy dinner and serving a lovely dessert is all that is needed for a fun evening. This Butter Pecan Angel Pie fits the requirements for an easy and elegant dessert! It is one that you can have ready in the freezer for company or family!
