Yield: 8 servings
Combine filling ingredients and pour into pre-baked shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn heat down to 325 degrees and continue to bake until set, about 40 minutes more. Pie is ready when a knife blade inserted 1-1/2 inches in from the edge emerges clean. The center of the pie may still quiver gently. Place on a rack and let cool completely.
Shortly before serving, heat broiler. Combine brown sugar, butter, cream, and chopped nuts and spread over pie. Decorate with pecan halves. Protect crust rim with a ring of foil or a specialty crust protector (available at cookware stores) and place pie about 6 inches below broiler. Keep oven door ajar. Broil, turning frequently, for about 5 minutes or until topping is dark brown and bubbly. Again let cool. Serve with whipped cream if desired.
