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.
Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 2 pies
A good pecan pie with raisins in it. An old family favorite.
Mix the sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Beat the egg yolks until light lemon colored and thick. Gradually beat the sugar mixture into the egg yolks. Add in the pecans, raisins, and melted butter.
Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry, and fold into the sugar mixture along with the vinegar. Don't mix the egg whites and vinegar, just put the whites in the bowl with the rest and while you gently fold them in, drizzle in the vinegar. Mix well, but do not beat! Pour into the pie shell.
Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes, then reduce to 350 degrees, and bake for 25 minutes more, until browned and set. Cool, chill, and serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. MMM!
