My grandmother makes the best pies. Of course, everyone's grandmother makes the best pies, but I'm not kidding when I say my grandmother's pies are divine. Everyone in my family has their favorite: some like the peach, some like the sweet potato, some like the chocolate. But from my grandmother's pie-making repertoire, there is one pie that we all agree is top notch: her pecan pie. One of the distinguishing characteristics of her pies is how fresh they are. She and my grandpa live on a farm, where small groves of pecan and peach trees grow and where there is always an ample crop of sweet potatoes. So her pies are made with the fruit of the land, making them very, very tasty.
