Pecan

Your Mama's Good Food. How many pecans can you pack into a pie? The Stocktons may be trying for a record. There are pecans on top, pecans in the custard and touches of maple and vanilla throughout. 221 W. Second St. 372-1811. Mon.-Fri. 11 a.m.-2 p.m.

NORTHEAST ARKANSAS

Apple

Peanut Butter Meringue
