Pecan Pie
When the pecans are falling from trees in dry riverbeds all over Texas, there's a general rush to use them every way imaginable. 
Sure, chefs have come up with some wacky ways to use pecans in the big cities, but oftentimes we'd just prefer that somebody's mama turn out a windowsill full of these pies.
