    Old widow's Note:

    This is our family's original southern pecan pie recipe. I have gotten may requests for this recipe, almost every time I make it someones asks me for the recipe! I am posting it here because I really appreciate all the great recipes I have found here and wanted to share something I think is really easy to make but comes out like a real gourmet treat.( I have found that a deep pie pan does not work as well as a shallow one in this recipe and you really should use a 9 or even a 10 inch pan if you have one.)

      Taste - amazing definitely 5 stars. But I baked and had to take it out after 50 minutes and it was probably a bit overdone. I don't know if we 'foamed' the eggs too much, but it was hard to incorporate into the syrup, I stirred for several minutes and finally just put it in the pie pan, but it made enough for a deep dish even though the recipe said use a normal pie shell. Well, that was ok because we made some mini pies. Probably because the foamy top, it got a hard crust on the top that was tasty, but very crunchy making it hard to cut. I will try it again beating the eggs less and baking a shorter time because the taste was worth it. Thanks OW! Made for My 3 Chefs 2012.
