  • Pour into 9 inch shallow pie shell.
  • Place Pecan halves on top of mixture in a design radiating out from the center.
  • Bake in oven for 60 to 70 minutes.
  • If the shell browns too quickly, place thin strips of foil around the edge, although this should not occur due to the low cooking temperature.
  • Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature before cutting, this allows the interior to set.
