    That pie looks beautiful! I’m sure it will taste great. If I put down the spatula every time I had a baking failure, I’d never blog.

    Pecan Pie is also my favorite!!! When I start eating it I cannot stop 🙂 I makes me wish we had Thanksgiving tomorrow as well in Canada!!

    I probably would have just left the first pie as is and called it a day. lol I’ve never had pecan pie so I obviously wouldn’t know the difference 😉

    Looks like you had a fun day with your sister though! I wish I lived closer to my sisters!

    Oh my gosh! You’re baking machines! But seriously, where did the phrase, “easy as pie” come from? A misnomer, for sure.

    The best advice I ever got about baking was to always set all of your ingredients out on the counter before doing anything else. Then again, I never bake because it’s so easy to mess up!

    Your family will definitely appreciate your effort either way 🙂

    Wow, I’m impressed you prepped so much for Thanksgiving. I’m heading over to help my Mom tomorrow morning but we’re doing a pretty low-key celebration. Those cinnamon rolls look A-mazing!

    That’s why I went for pecan pie cupcakes. Regular pie intimidates me! 😉

    Your failure looks tastier than actual pecan pie to me! Great job on the crust 🙂

    I’m impressed with the homemade crust! I’ve never made one but I know my mom has never got the hang of it and my grandma is too impatient to teach her anymore (after years of trying). But the way you showed it made it look relatively painless, maybe I’ll have to try making a pie for Christmas. 😉 Enjoy all of the food tomorrow!

    Your second attempt looks really good! Pecan pie is my favorite too, I can’t wait to make it one day. Well, I guess I can because I still haven’t made it. One day!

    I learned that pecan pie is deceivingly tough! I think it’s great that you tried and I’m sure it will be delicious tomorrow. Happy Thanksiving Meghann + family.

    The pie looks delicious! I wish I had made a pecan pie instead of pumpkin (even though I love pumpkin). Looks like you had a fun day!

    if it makes you feel ANY better, i used baking powder instead of baking soda in a recipe the other day. woops.

    funny thing is, no one noticed… except for me 😉
