German Pecan Pie Recipe @pinch

Lynn's German pecan pie recipe is lighter than the typical pecan pie. It is sweet and a little salty with a nice crispness. Topped off with a cool, creamy topping and dark chocolate shavings is just delicious. Super easy to make, this is a great recipe if you need to bring a holiday dessert but you are not the best baker. This is a fantastic tasting pie. Very easy to make. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
