My mother-in-law handed this down to me because she says that this is the best homemade nut pie ever, with a yummy flaky crust.

Although I'm not much for pecan pies, I thoroughly enjoyed making this recipe with mixed nuts! Absolutely delicious, & something I'd make again, for sure! Thanks for sharing your MIL's recipe! The crust is really special! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
