Another old family recipe. My great grandparents had a pecan ranch down in Texas until the Depression hit, so pecans have been popular in our family for a long time. This recipe is the culmination of a century of pecan pie baking and tasting!
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 3⁄4 cups brown sugar
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 8 eggs
- 1 1⁄3 cups whipping cream (not yet whipped)
- 2 cups light corn syrup
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 2⁄3 cups chopped pecans
- 2 chilled pie crusts, uncooked
