Pecan Pie Recipe Perfect for Low Carb Atkins, South Beach, or Diabetics

My mom decided to share a recipe with me that she found on Food.com because she said it was really yummy.  I think it actually sounds really good and I might try it myself this weekend.  Where else are you going to get a nice piece of Pecan Pie for just 4 Carbs?

Making the crust

    Thank you very much for this recipe, at last i found a decent low carb, diabetic friendly pecan pie recipe that i searched for so long. Thank you or this recipe i can bake my sugar free pecan pie for my aunt who loves pecan pie but unfortunately can’t eat one because she is diabetic.
