Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Similar to a traditional pecan pie, but much lighter and not as sweet. Under the pecans, the consistency is almost like that of a custard pie.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter with the sugars and salt. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour into the pie shell.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a tester inserted near the center of the pie comes out clean. Serve warm or cooled completely.

    I would eliminate the nuts and brown sugar, put in nutmeg, allspice for a true chess pie.
