Date Pecan Pie // Sweet Laurel

Pecan pie is a decadent holiday classic and has always been one of my favorites. The dates add a wonderful sweetness that is not as heavy as refined sugar, but still just as scrumptious. Make sure your crust is nice and golden before taking it out of the oven. Enjoy!
