This unusual pie wins over everyone who tries it. The smooth filling nicely accents the nuts.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups pecan halves
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 3 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon butter flavoring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. In a small bowl, cream butter and cream cheese. Beat in butter flavoring. Gradually add flour until mixture forms a ball. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes or until easy to handle.
  2. Roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Place pastry in plate; trim to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate. Flute edges. Place pecans in crust; set aside.
