WHAT'S FOR DESSERT? Non corn syrup PECAN PIE - Diabetic recipe too

Hope all of you are getting ready to make all kinds of pies next week for Thanksgiving. 
It's my favorite part of the meal.

Now that I may have gestational diabetes, I'm quickly trying to find some holiday options for myself. Yikes!
So far, this is my favorite! This may not be your regular pecan pie, but it's fabulous!
