    Buttermilk Pecan Pie

    Source of Recipe


    makes 2

    1 stick margarine (or butter) melted
    1/3 cup all purpose flour
    3 eggs
    1 1/4 cup buttermilk
    2 cup sugar
    1 pinch salt
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    2 deep dish crusts
    pecans totals about cup altogether (see below)

    Mix butter, flour, eggs, buttermilk, sugar, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon
    and vanilla together well. Pour into crusts.

    Top with pecan halves (usually I put in a starburst on top). Dust
    with nutmeg and cinnamon lightly across the top. Bake in preheated
    oven at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.

    This pie can be left out (never lasts that long) on the countertop
    for several days at room temperature. It freezes well.

    Note: Make sure to use a fork and poke holes around the crust.

    My change to this recipe is to add 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
    to the mixture along with 1/3 cup finely ground pecans (like ground
    coffee). Just putting pecans on the top didn't cut it for me.
