- 1 pie crust
- 2 cups pecans
- 4 eggs
- 1 ½ cups brown sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 stick of melted butter
- 1 TBSP all purpose flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 cup bourbon or brandy (optional)
Beat together the eggs, sugar, salt flour, and butter to make a custard
Warm these over a barely medium flame for about 10 minutes, stirring fairly frequently. Make sure it doesn’t approach boiling.
Remove from heat, add pecans, vanilla, and bourbon or brandy if you choose to add this. Pour into pie crust.
Bake at 325 for 25 minutes until custard is set. Be sure to set your rack up in the middle third of the oven or you might curdle the eggs.
Let it cool until you can.
