You can decoratively mark the edge of the dough with your knuckles or the tines of a fork. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.


Filling:


Preheat oven to 325


Remove crust from the refrigerator.


Sprinkle pecans on bottom of pastry shell. Combine eggs and remaining ingredients stirring until blended.

This pie always tastes better the day after you bake it.

Notes

This pie is called somewhat because the pastry is failproof. The traditional crust involved hours and too much time! This crust is rich and flaky. You can always use a frozen prepared pie crust, if you chose.
