This is the treasured "Golden Oldie" that my grandmother made so often whenever we'd come to visit. Grandma grew her own pecans, and we never tried of cracking them and picking out the meat when we knew we'd be treated to her special pie!

"I love love this recipe! Just a tip for some. I don't like thick pies so I make 2 pies with this one recipe and the always turns out perfect!"

"Great recipe but deep dish pie shells are a must,had enough filling to make 4 regular pie shells.Rather than throw away what was left I improvised & made a custard out of the rest!"

"This is a true combo pie! Part crunchy pecan pie combined with a silky custard pie. Yummy! Unlike any pie we had before. Did not have buttermilk on hand. Used cook's trick to combine a teaspoon of vinegar into whole milk. Tasted great!"
