I remember growing up in the 50's, that for all the family reunions and church picnics, my Great Aunt Beaufort always brought her homemade pecan pies. they were a favorite among many, including myself. I grabbed a piece just as soon as I could, because I knew they would get gone quickly.
A couple of years ago, her granddaughter gave me the recipe. It calls for ingredients like a pinch of salt and butter the size of a large egg and just a few instructions as to how to put it together.
Her pies were always thin so I assumed she made 2 pies with this recipe. I have made several of the pies and all have been good. I have finally gotten it to taste like what I remember as a child.
For me, it has to be gluten free. I use a gluten free pie crust mix purchased from Wal-mart.
