Honey Crunch Pecan Pie

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Aunt Cookie

This recipe is an adoptee from the RecipeZaar account. I changed the recipe slightly because the crust ingredients were entered incorrectly by the original owner of this recipe (unless the crust was really made of 1/3 cup flour and 1/2 cup crisco, which I highly doubt). Anyway, this is a very good pecan pie; I think the honey added to the topping is really nice. I hope you enjoy it!

This is found in The Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook. It is a most awesome pie if you love pecans,brown sugar custard and crunch topping. I was going to post it but found it already listed. Make this pie and you will be very happy. It has been "our pecan pie" for at least 5 years. Note: we use rum.
